Hachisuke, known as Hu-Bee in America, is the mascot of the video game developer company Hudson Soft, who also appears on the company's logo. Aside from being the logo, Hudson added in Hachisuke as an item in Super Mario Bros. Special. When Mario finds this item in the game, he is awarded 8000 points. The item can be found exclusively in World 1-1, hiding inside a Hidden Block. Hudson's mascot being a bee is a reference to a 1950's sedan called the Hudson Hornet.
