Banzai Bill (also known as Magnum Bills in the Super Mario World television series) are a larger variety of Bullet Bills that first appear in Super Mario World. Their attack pattern usually consists of shooting from off-screen (though occasionally, players can see them being fired from Banzai Bill Cannons) where a firing sound is played to alert players that they are incoming, and they travel toward players in a straight line. To avoid them, players can either jump on higher platforms or duck in lower areas of the stage. As with all Bullet Bill varieties, jumping on them or using a star on them are the only ways to defeat them, as they are immune to fireballs and break out very quickly if they are frozen with ice balls. While Banzai Bills share the same black coloration and physical characteristics as Bullet Bills, Banzai Bills lack arms and have a mouth in the form of a shark smile. They are the second-largest sub-species of Bullet Bills, after the King Bill. The word Banzai is a Japanese interjection mainly used for jubilation or celebration, frequently translated as "Hooray!"
