First appearance Super Mario Land (1989)

Biokinton[1], also known as Brokinton[2], is the fourth boss in the game Super Mario Land. He is an extremely shy creature who hides behind a cloud, obscuring his body, which has never been seen[3]. Biokinton is the boss of Chai Kingdom, the fourth world of Sarasaland.

In battle, Biokinton attacks by throwing Chicken enemies at Mario in the Sky Pop. To defeat Biokinton, Mario has to shoot missiles at him. After twenty[3] hits, Biokinton is defeated, and Mario fights Tatanga in the same arena. Mario is awarded 5000 points for defeating Biokinton.

Unlike other bosses, there is no switch to press to automatically destroy Biokinton. It must be shot down with missiles. The same applies to Tatanga, though both explode upon defeat in a similar fashion to the previous bosses.

Unlike the previous three bosses of the game, Biokinton does not resemble any creatures in the game. His aeriform disguise makes him resemble a Lakitu's Cloud, however.
