From the Super Mario Wiki
Hiyoihoi is the third boss in the game Super Mario Land. Hiyoihoi looks much like his servants, the Tokotokos, except with legs. In fact, he evolved from a Tokotoko. When Tatanga invades Sarasaland, the alien invader puts Hiyoihoi in charge of the Easton Kingdom, the third world of Sarasaland. As such, Hiyoihoi has the important task of not only protecting his kingdom, but also protecting the entrance to the Chai Kingdom, Tatanga's base-of-operations.
In battle, Hiyoihoi attacks by throwing Ganchan boulder enemies at Mario. To defeat Hiyoihoi, Mario has to jump on top of these boulders and fire Superballs at the rock guardian. After enough hits, Hiyoihoi is defeated and Mario liberates the Easton Kingdom. Alternatively, Mario can simply jump over Hiyoihoi and press the strange button behind the rock creature. This instantly destroys Hiyoihoi, thus liberating the Easton Kingdom. Either way, Mario is awarded 5000 points for defeating Hiyoihoi and is allowed to progress into the Chai Kingdom. Hiyoihoi is most likely the leader of Tokotokos.

Artwork of Hiyoihoi tossing a Ganchan.
- Hiyoihoi resembles an Easter Island statue, also known as a Moai.
- Hiyoihoi's attack pattern is similar to that of Clawgrip from Super Mario Bros. 2, as they are both bosses who remain in one place and throw objects at the player.
