A Bēro (generically referred to by Nintendo Power as spook heads[1]) is an enemy that appears in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and reside in the Pumpkin Zone. They resemble Japanese paper lanterns and are based on the Chōchin-obake, a paper lantern that comes alive on its one hundredth "birthday" in Japanese mythology. Their attack method involves them sticking out their tongues. They cannot be destroyed, but they can be used as platforms to step on.

Bēro has also appeared in volume 8 of Super Mario-Kun. It is seen giving Wario bad food.
