History[edit]

Super Mario series[edit]

Super Mario 3D Land[edit]

Para-Biddybuds make their first appearance in Super Mario 3D Land, where they're found in groups and fly in circles or in lines. Some groups are seen one above the other or one after the other. Mario can defeat them with any attack, just like Goombas. They generally appear in groups of five, though there are some levels in which less then that number are shown together or they appear individually.

Super Mario 3D World[edit]

Para-Biddybuds reappear in Super Mario 3D World. They act the same as they do in Super Mario 3D Land, appearing in groups that roam in a set pattern. In this game, they can be seen in groups greater than 5 as well as less than 5.

Mario Party: Island Tour[edit]

Many Para-Biddybuds populate the Star-Crossed Skyway board in Mario Party: Island Tour. However, they do not affect gameplay. A pink one also appears as a tile in the minigame Match Faker.

Mario Kart 8[edit]
