Dragonzamasu[1][2] (alternatively Dragon Zamasu[3]) is the second boss in Super Mario Land. He resembles a large Yurarin Boo and, by extension, a Yurarin. Dragonzamasu is in charge of the Muda Kingdom. During Tatanga's invasion of Sarasaland, Dragonzamasu came under Tatanga's control.

In battle, Dragonzamasu attacks by spitting fire at Mario in his Marine Pop. To defeat Dragonzamasu, Mario has to shoot twenty torpedoes at him, while dodging Tamao, who floats around the arena and can block the Marine Pop's torpedoes. Alternatively, Mario can defeat Dragonzamasu by shooting torpedoes at the blocks in the bottom right corner of the arena, and activating the switch behind these blocks. Either way, Mario is awarded 5000 points for defeating Dragonzamasu and is allowed to progress into the Easton Kingdom.

In the Super Mario Land manga, Dragonzamasu is the boss of Muda Kingdom and, in order to find him, Mario and Mekakuribō capture a Yurarin Boo, forcing it to give them directions to the boss' lair. After reaching it, Mekakuribō analyzes that Mario needs to shoot Dragonzamasu 20 times to defeat him, but they are then hit by Tamao, who damages the submarine, creating a leak that Mario stops by using the Yurarin Boo as a cork. Mario eventually shoots Dragonzamasu down and proceeds.

In Super Mario-kun, Dragonzamasu appears in the last chapter of volume 3, in a flooded room in Bowser's Castle. Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi come face to face with Dragonzamasu and Tamao. Dragonzamasu uses his snout to torment Mario and shoot flames at him, until Mario flashes the two with his bald spot and takes advantage of the situation to blow into Dragonzamasu's snout, until he pops like a balloon.
