Super Mario Odyssey

During the events of Super Mario Odyssey, Bowser invaded New Donk City while preparing for his wedding after kidnapping Princess Peach. He used a large Mechawiggler to steal the city's power, while also deactivating the New Donk City power plant and filling the city with advertisements to his wedding. Sherms and Goombas patrolled the city while Piranha Plants infested the undergrounds. Aboard the Odyssey, Mario and Cappy followed in hot pursuit to the Kingdom, and confronted the Mechawiggler perched on top of the City Hall.

After defeating it and ridding the city of all the advertisement, the duo aided Pauline in fixing the city's power plant and assembling a band to perform at the New Donk City Festival, before moving on to Luncheon Kingdom.
