Bomubomu[1] are pig-like enemies found in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. They are most common in Mario Zone, where they can be found in Mario's hat and Mario's belly. They also populate the moon, as well as other parts of Space Zone. Bomubomu walk left and right, shooting cannonballs from their cannon-shaped snouts, which can be aimed horizontally or diagonally upwards. Mario can attempt to avoid these cannonballs or jump on them to make them fall down. Bomubomu can be defeated with a jump or the toss of a fireball. The color of Bombomu and the cannonballs they fire changes depending on the area they are encountered, but there are no differences between their strength or behavior.
