An Albatoss is an enemy in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic and its western counterpart, Super Mario Bros. 2. Their name is a portmanteau of the "albatross" bird species and "toss," which refers to their attack method.
Super Mario series
Super Mario Bros. 2
In Super Mario Bros. 2, Albatosses used to be normal residents of Subcon until Wart took control. Albatosses carry Bob-Ombs and drop them, attempting to hit one of the playable characters: Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool, or Toad. An Albatoss can be defeated if the player's character throws a vegetable at it or touches it under the Starman effects. Unlike most other enemies, Albatosses cannot be picked up and thrown.
If an Albatoss flies low enough, the character can jump on an Albatoss's back and ride on it. World 6-2 and World 7-1 require the player's character to ride Albatosses to reach otherwise inaccessible parts of the level; these ones do not carry Bob-Ombs.
Super Mario Bros. 3 remakes
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 this show, they have a dark brown-ish head, instead of matching their body's red color.
In the episode "Jungle Fever", Mario and his friends ride an Albatoss to get off of the bridge King Koopa sliced. Koopa's rocket also resembles the head of an Albatoss. Additionally, the character Hooded Robin somewhat resembles an Albatoss.
In a part of Super Mario-Kun, an Albatoss is carrying Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi but then hurls them into a wall.
