From the Super Mario Wiki
(Redirected from King Bill (Banzai Bill))
Bull's-Eye Banzais, originally referred to as King Bills like the other large versions of the Bullet Bills, such as Banzai Bills and the actual King Bills, are the red heat-seeking variants of Banzai Bills and a larger variety of Bull's-Eye Bills. They attack by homing in on the player.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
King Bills only appear in World 9-3 of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Unlike Missile Bills, they only have a limited homing ability where they will track their target's vertical position and then continue forward once they reach that height. Their animation is very limited as well, always maintaining a horizontal position and never turning to point at their target.
The player can defeat it by simply jumping on its head, or by running into it with a Super Star. Also, a King Bill cannot be frozen by an ice ball; it will break the ice and release itself when the ice ball reaches it. Likewise, POW Blocks are useless against them.
Super Mario 3D World
Super Mario Maker 2
Bull's-Eye Banzais appear under their current name in Super Mario Maker 2. Unlike previously, they can move a full 360 degrees to track players like the Bull's-Eye Bill, and the marks on their eyes are red, like the normal Banzai Bill, instead of black. In a vein similar to Banzai Bills, Bull's-Eye Banzais also receive new designs for all of the present game styles, barring New Super Mario Bros. U, in which their designs are mostly retained from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are replaced by Cat Banzai Bills in the Super Mario 3D World style.
