King Totomesu is the first boss in the game Super Mario Land. He is a large sphinx- or lion-like creature who resembles a Gao but, unlike this enemy, is capable of moving in addition to breathing fire. King Totomesu leads the Birabuto Kingdom under Princess Daisy. During Tatanga's invasion of Sarasaland, King Totomesu fell under Tatanga's control.
The player faces King Totomesu at the end of the pyramid in which the third level of Birabuto Kingdom takes place. His fight works like the battles with Bowser and his copies in Super Mario Bros. In battle, he attacks by attempting to jump on and shoot fire at the player. To defeat King Totomesu, the player has to wait for him to jump and then dash to activate the switch behind him or simply shoot five Superballs at him. Dashing and jumping over him works as well. Either way, the player is awarded 5000 points for defeating King Totomesu and is allowed to progress into the Muda Kingdom.
