A Jawbus is an enemy found in the game Super Paper Mario. Jawbuses first appear to be rolling, rhombus-shaped creatures with smiling face and a sphere for a tail. When the player gets closer, they reveal their dragon-like form and will try to bite them. In this form, a Jawbus has a long spiky neck and a spiky sphere-shaped body.

When attacking a Jawbus, their weak spot is their tail. In addition, their necks stretch out, so jumping over them would normally be very difficult. They also keep going in the same direction unless they hit a wall or are hit on their tail. There are several ways to beat them, most of which involve the use of Pixls for help, such as manually detonating Boomer to blow up the tail. Flipping to 3D and getting around them works too.
