Super Mario series
Super Mario Galaxy
In their first appearance in Super Mario Galaxy, honeybees appear in the Honeyhive Galaxy, Gold Leaf Galaxy, and Sea Slide Galaxy. In addition, the Bee Mushroom makes its first appearance in this game, and it allows Mario to transform into Bee Mario. In this form, Mario is able to flutter through the air for a brief period of time and also stick to and climb honey walls.
Super Mario Galaxy 2
In Super Mario Galaxy 2, the honeybees appear in a few galaxies and have the same role as in Super Mario Galaxy. Occasionally, they give the player helpful tips on how best to control Mario after he transforms into Bee Mario. After the player completes the mission The Secret Wall Jump in Honeybloom Galaxy, a honeybee appears onboard Starship Mario and tells the player that they can flutter higher in the air if they collect coins while hovering as Bee Mario. When the honeybee boards Starship Mario, Lubba says he is allergic to bees.
Honeybees also appear in the Honeyhop Galaxy, and the Honey Queen makes a reappearance.
