Hiyoihoi,[1][2] also written as Hiyohoi,[3] is the third boss in the game Super Mario Land. He evolved from a Tokotoko[1] and resembles this enemy in appearance, except that he has legs. Hiyoihoi is in charge of the Easton Kingdom. During Tatanga's invasion of Sarasaland, Hiyoihoi came under Tatanga's control.

In battle, Hiyoihoi attacks by throwing Ganchan boulders at Mario. To defeat Hiyoihoi, Mario has to fire ten Superballs at him while avoiding being hit by the Ganchans. Alternatively, Mario can simply jump over Hiyoihoi and activate the switch behind him. Either way, Mario is awarded 5000 points for defeating Hiyoihoi and is allowed to progress into the Chai Kingdom.
