First appearance Super Mario Land (1989)

Batadons[1][2] are hopping stone heads found in the game Super Mario Land. To defeat these enemies, Mario either has to jump on top of them or shoot three Superballs at him. Mario has to be quick, as they would not stay on the ground for long. Defeating a Batadon would award him 800 points. Batadons could also pound through some platforms. They only appear in Worlds 3-1 and 3-3. Batadons closely resemble Easter Island moai heads with wings. They also resemble Tokotokos, another rock-based enemy found in the Easton Kingdom.
