Bunbun are bee-like enemies that reside in the Birabuto Kingdom of Super Mario Land. They soar overhead, dropping their spears on Mario. Jumping or shooting a superball at them clips their wings, sending them crashing to the ground and awarding Mario 800 points. Some Bunbun fly at very high altitudes out of reach, making their defeat virtually impossible. They only appear in World 1-2.
