Glitch in battle with Popple and Birdo

At this moment, i'm playing superstar saga, against Popple & Birdo. I defeated both, but Popple stay in battle even when i defeated him (but couldn't attack)


That's as i made:
1º I burnt Popple with Advaned version of Fire Bros (Instead of RED burn, this "Burn" don't disappear and make more damage):
Spoiler: click to toggle

2º I waited until Birdo put Popple in an egg. The fire make damage, also inside the egg:
Spoiler: click to toggle

3º The Hand don't damage the eggs, so i used just hand against them. Soon or later, the fire will defeat Popple inside the egg:
Spoiler: click to toggle

As can be seen in image, Popple was defeated inside the egg (See the stars)

4º But when all eggs had been destroyed... SURPRISE¡¡ Popple is inside one of them, and haven't a pointer, so cannot be attacked:
Spoiler: click to toggle

5º The battle ends? No problem. Popple, will stay here anyway: :MarioDance:
Spoiler: click to toggle

I have found nothing about this glitch in other places

Oh yeah, I recall hearing about this glitch a while ago. I think has something to do with the battle/enemy script(s) not removing Popple if he dies in an egg, as he is supposed to be invincible when inside one. He is still dead of course, but his graphics remain due to the lack of an exception for this. If this is the case, then it would be an oversight on the programmers' part.

It should be easy enough to fix as well if I'm right about it; one would have to change the scripting to make it so he can still be removed upon death when in an egg. Either that or make being laid in an egg cure burn/ailments, since Birdo doesn't go berserk either if this glitch is utilized. Either that or you could be to make him immune to burn if you want an easy fix outside of scripting.
Have a nice day!

Oh wow, it's been a while. Um. Hi. I guess I can get back into M&L stuff sooner or later, it really has been ages.

To use a sword, /\ and / again.
