Bull's-Eye Banzais, originally referred to as King Bills like the other large versions of the Bullet Bills, such as Banzai Bills and the actual King Bills, are the red heat-seeking variants of Banzai Bills and a larger variety of Bull's-Eye Bills. They attack by homing in on the player.
Super Mario series
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
King Bills only appear in World 9-3 of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Unlike Missile Bills, they only have a limited homing ability where they will track their target's vertical position and then continue forward once they reach that height. Their animation is very limited as well, always maintaining a horizontal position and never turning to point at their target.
The player can defeat it by simply jumping on its head, or by running into it with a Star. Also, a King Bill cannot be frozen by an ice ball; it will break the ice and release itself when the ice ball reaches it. Likewise, POW Blocks are useless against them.
Super Mario 3D World
Super Mario Maker 2
Bull's-Eye Banzais appear under their current name in Super Mario Maker 2. Unlike previously, they can move a full 360 degrees to track players like the Bull's-Eye Bill, and the marks on their eyes are red, like the normal Banzai Bill, instead of black. In a vein similar to Banzai Bills, Bull's-Eye Banzais also receive new designs for all of the present game styles, consisting of a solid red coloration of the original designs. They are replaced by Cat Banzai Bills in the Super Mario 3D World style. Additionally, Bull's-Eye Banzais in the Super Mario Bros. 3 style have extremely subtle differences in their sprites between day and night, with the night ones having one less vertical line of outline pixels behind the domed area.
