First appearance Super Mario Bros. Wonder (2023)

Houhous are horned owl enemies that appear in Super Mario Bros. Wonder, appearing only in the level Pokipede Pass. They roost on nests atop ceilings; when they spot the player, they will swoop down in an arc-like motion towards the player's direction, destroying any snow blocks in their way, after which they will return to their nest. They can easily be taken out with any attack.
