Bulrushes are blue Triceratops/bison-like creatures wearing tracksuits that first appear in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. Their name is a pun on the plant of the same name, as well as a portmanteau of "bull" and "rush", referring to their appearance and behavior. They appear prominently in a level with their own name, Bulrush Coming Through!. The player is able to stand on Bulrushes, but they will also try to ram into the player if they get close and will destroy any Hard Blocks or any destructible blocks in their way. If they hit a wall while ramming, they will become stunned for a short time before regaining composure. They take multiple hits to defeat by a Fire Flower.[1]

During the Wonder Effect in Bulrush Coming Through!, Bulrush Express, and The Final Battle! Bowser's Rage Stage, a stampede of Bulrushes appears. They jump high off of slopes.[1]


  • Trading card bio: This rowdy enemy charges as soon as it sees Mario or his friends, but it's not great at stopping!
