Not to be confused with Big Bee.

Bigbees[1] (generically referred to by Nintendo Power as big bee[2]) is a Beebee enemy from the Tree Zone level Honeybees in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. If Mario goes near to the Bigbee, it will drop down and then slowly fly back up to its position upon hitting the floor, very similar to Suu from Super Mario Land. Unlike Suu, they cannot be stomped, similar to Karamenbo and Thwomps. With the exception of a Star, nothing can defeat them.
