Sprite from Super Paper Mario
First appearance Super Paper Mario (2007)
Variant of Longator

The Longadile is an enemy in Super Paper Mario. It appears as a stronger, red version of the Longator. Its name comes from "elongate" and "crocodile," possibly a reference in succession to Longator, whose name sounds like "alligator". It is only found in Castle Bleck Interior and the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. It attacks by stretching its head out to extreme proportions, reaching the player from a long distance away. This attacking method makes it much easier to jump on since its body becomes a larger target. As Tippi points out when scanning them, the heroes have to be careful when fighting these enemies as they can make Mario or Luigi fall into the abyss if they get hit which increases the damage. Also, when Dimentio assaults Mario and Luigi in the first room of his magic, Dimentio's energy sparks can make this a very deadly distraction due to the narrow ledges and Longadiles that attack.
