First appearance Super Mario Sunshine (2002)
Variant of Purple Bullet Bill

Guided Bullet Bills[1] are special Purple Bullet Bills[2] that appear in Super Mario Sunshine. They only appear during the final battle, where they are fired by Bowser Jr. Guided Bullet Bills act similarly to Purple Bullet Bills in that they will home in on Mario, though they are slower and capable of moving up and down, akin to the Bullet Bills in Super Mario Galaxy. Additionally, they come in black and blue varieties, the latter of which will let out a 1-Up Mushroom or a Water Bottle if stomped on.
