King Bills[1] 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[edit]

Mario encounters a King Bill.

King Bills only appear in World 9-3 of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Unlike Bull's-Eye Bill, 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.

King Bills are never seen being fired from a Banzai Bill Cannon.

Super Mario 3D World[edit]

Although no actual King Bills show up in Super Mario 3D World, another Banzai Bill variant, the Cat Banzai Bill, behaves similarly.
