A Gawbus is an enemy in Super Paper Mario. Like all members of the Jawbus family, it enjoys biting and has a long extendable neck. It also persistently keeps going in the same direction unless it hits a dead end or is hit on its weak spot, the tail. It is the second most powerful enemy in the Jawbus family (Dark Jawbus being the first). This species only appears in the 91st floor of the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials, in the Castle Bleck Entry, and in the Castle Bleck Inner Sanctum.

Unlike all other species in the game, the Gawbus is listed in the bestiary after its dark version. It is likely an unintended mishap by the developers.
