Longators are enemies in Super Paper Mario. Their name is taken from the word "elongate", referring to their stretching abilities, and "alligator," despite not resembling any reptilian animal. It is especially possible that it references the word "elongate" as a term used in astronomy, since Longators are found in outer space. Longators appear as two white rectangles stacked on top of each other with a friendly face on the top one. It attacks by stretching its head out to insane proportions, reaching the player from a long distance away (hence its name). This attack method, however, makes it a larger target and thus easier to jump on.
