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. It acts much like a Fly or Kumo, except it bounces higher, moves slower, and does not pause on the ground. 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 moai heads, similarly to Tokotokos, other rock-based creatures found in the Easton Kingdom; however, Batadons are the only ones with wings.
