First appearance Super Mario Land (1989)

Batadons[1][2] are hopping stone head enemies found in the game Super Mario Land. To defeat this enemy, Mario either has to jump on top of it, or shoot three Superballs at it. The player has to be quick, as they do not stay on the ground for long. Defeating a Batadon awards them with 800 points. Batadons can also pound through some platforms. They only appear in Worlds 3-1 and 3-3. Batadons closely resemble Easter Island moai heads, similarly to Tokotokos and Hiyoihoi, other rock-based creatures found in the Easton Kingdom; however, Batadons are the only ones with wings.
