Bees are insects appearing in the Mario, Wario, and Yoshi franchises. At least in the Mario franchise, the Honey Queen is their ruler.


Super Mario series[edit]

Super Mario Sunshine[edit]

Bees in Gelato Beach.

In Super Mario Sunshine, various Beehives can be found in Bianco Hills, Gelato Beach, and Pianta Village. If Mario gets too close to a Beehive or knocks one down, the Bees[1] swarm him, causing damage if he gets stung. Yoshi can eat these Bees for one Coin each. The last Bee to be eaten always gives a Blue Coin or 1-Up Mushroom.

Super Mario Galaxy[edit]

Another species of Bees appears in Super Mario Galaxy. These Bees are different from the ones encountered in Super Mario Sunshine in that they are the same size as Mario, and are capable of conversing with him. These Bees are also friendly to Mario, and serve the Queen Bee. In addition, the Bee Mushroom makes its first appearance in this game, which allows Mario to transform into Bee Mario. In this form, Mario is able to flutter through the air for a brief period of time, and also stick to and climb Honeycomb Walls.

Super Mario Galaxy 2[edit]

Many of the passengers, including one of the Bees, that visit Starship Mario in Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Bees reappear in a few galaxies in Super Mario Galaxy 2, serving the same function that they did in Super Mario Galaxy. Occasionally, they give the player helpful tips on how best to control Mario after he transforms into Bee Mario. After completing the "The Secret Wall Jump" mission in the Honeybloom Galaxy, a Bee appears onboard Starship Mario, and tells the player that they can flutter higher in the air if they collect coins while hovering as Bee Mario. When the Bee boards Starship Mario, Lubba says he is allergic to bees.

Yoshi's Story[edit]

A Bee from Yoshi's Story.

Bees[2] appear in Yoshi's Story, where they fly around their Beehive, not letting Yoshi pass. Yoshi has to walk slowly to prevent the Bees from bothering him. Other larger Bees also appear in Yoshi's Story, as enemies that sting Yoshi if he gets too close.

Mario & Luigi series[edit]

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story[edit]

A Beehoss and its Bees in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Bees appear as enemies alongside the Beehoss enemy, which had the ability to summon Bees from its honeycomb during battle.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team[edit]


Bees reappear with Beehoss enemies in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. They now have spikes on their head.

Mario Party 10[edit]

Bees in Mario Party 10.

Bees return in Mario Party 10 in the minigame Beeline Shrine, serving as the main obstacles. Here, they resemble real-world honeybees.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]


In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, a Beehive item appears which, when thrown at an opponent, releases a swarm of Bees that attacks them. However, if a player attacks a Beehive directly, the Bees go after them instead.
