Super Mario series
Super Mario Bros. 2
Albatosses used to be normal residents of Subcon until Wart took control. Albatosses carry Bob-Ombs and drop them on Mario and his allies. However, if an Albatoss flies low enough, Mario and his friends can jump on its back and ride on top of the bird. World 6-2 and World 7-1 require the player to ride on top of Albatosses to reach otherwise inaccessible parts of the level; these ones do not carry Bob-Ombs. Unlike most of the other enemies in Super Mario Bros. 2, Albatosses cannot be picked up and thrown.

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!
Albatosses make a few appearances in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! They are usually used as bombers by King Koopa, and they sometimes capture Mario and company in nets. Albatosses are also seen in the show's intro.
In the episode "Jungle Fever", Mario and his friends ride an Albatoss to get off of the bridge King Koopa sliced. Moon Man Koopa's spaceship also resembles the head of an Albatoss. Additionally, the character Hooded Robin somewhat resembles an Albatoss.
An Albatoss is shown carrying Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi, but then hurls them into a wall.
