Bomubomu (generically referred to by Nintendo Power as cannonball-spitting creatures[1]) are pig-like enemies found in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. They are most common in the Mario Zone, where they can be found in the second and fourth stages. They also populate the Space Zone's first stage.

Bomubomu walk left and right, shooting cannonballs from their cannon-shaped snouts, which can be aimed horizontally or diagonally upwards. Mario can jump on these cannonballs to destroy them. Bomubomu can be defeated with a jump or a fireball. The color of Bomubomu and the cannonballs they fire have three different sets depending on the area they are encountered, but there are no differences between their strength or behavior.
