Albatosses used to be normal residents of Subcon until the maniacal Wart seized power. The toad king ordered the red birds to be part of his military. Albatosses were trained to carry Bob-ombs and drop them on civilians who would otherwise make for the new dictator.
Most of the time, Artichokers remain stationary, appearing to be normal shrubs. This is, in fact, a clever survival mechanism that allows the Artichokers to prey on unsuspecting travelers. Since items can sometimes be found in shrubs, an unlucky adventurer may accidentally stumble across an Artichoker, instead of treasure. After falling for the deception, the adventurer will have to fight the plant monster in combat. Unfortunately for the traveler, Artichokers prove to be very tough opponents.
They can dash at an amazing speed towards Mario.

As revealed in the Game Boy Advance remake, Bazzas can live in both fresh and salt water.
Strangely, the cannonballs in Super Mario 64 looked just like him, only without any features except the body.
- It's possible the Big Scorper is named after the Big Scorper from Frank Herbert's best selling novel Dune
- Big Scorper is not based on the generic Real World creature of the same name, but on the larvae from the antlion family of insects.

As they cannot see where Yoshi is located, they trust in their auditive senses to perceive the Yoshi's location and then attack.
A stack of Bloopers is formed when multiple Bloopers group up, forming a stack.

Bombshell Koopas are the most common enemy in the Super Mario Land, appearing in all levels except for 2-3 (the underwater level), and 4-3 (the flying level). Like red-shelled Koopa Troopas, Bombshell Koopas do not walk off edges, but merely pace back and forth on the platform.
- The Bonecoaster is probably a dead snake (possibly even a dry snake).
[...] booes are scared of themselves when they look in a mirror.
("...Isn't the plural boos?")
There are two types of Boos in this game. One type stays visible and does not hurt Mario until transparency is achieved, at which they can harm the heroic plumber.
- The boos' ability to freeze when looked at and move when not is used by aliens called Weeping Angels in the British Sci-Fi show Doctor Who.
Boo Guys employed a variety of traps in the game, including maces. Individual Boo Guys operated a single mace attached to a long chain. When a Boo Guy spotted a Yoshi, the ghost would drop the mace from the ceiling, hoping to crush the dinosaur. However, the Yoshi would have to be directly under the mace for the attack to be effective, and the Boo Guys tended to simply drop their maces continuously, instead of dropping the weapon at the most opportune moment. Since the weapon was heavy, it would take some time for the Boo Guy to pull the ball up to attempt another attack, allowing the Yoshis to pass safely underneath the weapon. This was the only way to get past these weapons, as the chain itself would actually damage the heroic dinosaurs.
After dropping the bomb, the unfortunate Boo Guy would eventually hang its head down in shame, while the other ghosts shook their heads in disappointment.
If it spots the player,it blows the player.
Its HP amount is a reference to the Nintendo 64, since, as seen in Luigi's Diary in Paper Mario, he likes Nintendo 64s (at least at the time of Paper Mario), since he wonders excitedly if the Shy Guys have a Nintendo 64.
- Bugaboom's eyes look strangely hypnotic, meaning that it may not have been the one who planned the Mandibug attack and just may have been hypnotized into assaulting Mario. Of course, this may also mean that Bugaboom is simply demented.
- It then proceeds to attack Mario just like a regular Mandibug would except it is much bigger.
- Glamdozer's boss music seems to be a remix of Bugaboom's theme. They also have similaraties, as both a bigger version of their species, and both need to be ground-pounded to be defeated, like their species.
Two Bullies appear in a screenshot on the Japanese website for Super Mario 3D World. In Super Mario 3D World, the Bullies have your paper of Super Mario 64 and are defeateds how in Super Mario 64 and with your voices of Super Mario 64.

Out of all the moustached bosses from Super Mario 64 DS, Chief Chilly takes greatest pride about his moustache.
Clambos also appear in Donkey Kong Land. However, instead of shooting pearls, they are constantly opening and closing their spacey mantles, which makes them hard to avoid.
- Culex, from the first RPG Mario, has a attack called "Dark Star". However it's possible that it doesn't has anything to do with "this" Dark Star.
- Oddly enough, the Dark Star has more menacing eyes than Dark Star X.
However, he unhealthily holds in his anger, which he releases by pecking golden statues of his boss.
("This is a wiki about the Mario series, not a repository of health advices for fictional characters.")
Drool Hards are relatives of Hanging Blow Hards but don't have the swing.
Dry Bones (also known as Skeleton Koopas)[...]
- According to the New Super Mario Bros. series, Dry Bones never walk off into pits or lava. This suggests that Dry Bones are no ordinary undead Koopa Troopas, they are undead Red Koopa Troopas, since these enemies never walk off cliffs or into pits, either. It may also be that these Koopa Troopas decided to be more careful for now on, after whatever decision they made before they died.
Concept and creation
The reason for the fake Bowsers in the original Super Mario Bros. is due to the fact that, while the game was still in development, since all enemies have their sprites flipped upside-down when they are defeated (including Goombas, which had two death animations, with the other being flattened, and except for Piranha Plants, which simply disappear, and Bullet Bills, which stay rightside up, while defeated Koopa Troopas and Buzzy Beetles turn into upside-down shells), one of the programmers accidentally inserted an upside-down Koopa Troopa shell when portraying Bowser's death animation as if he were defeated with fireballs. The developers liked this idea, and as a result, this idea was extended to most of the Bowser battles in the game.
(Here's a masterclass in how to make a fairly simple statement way more confusing and hard to read than it needs to. Never use one word where three might do and redundantly state which enemies have their sprites flipped, because simply saying "except [the ones that don't]" would just not have been obvious enough.)
[...] it begins to chase him by bouncing and try to touch him with its flaming body.
Luigi and some Fuzzballs.
- Galoombas are infinitely better than Goombas and if you disagree you are wrong.
(That means that Gargantua Blarggs are short Gargantua Blarggs.)
DO NOT under estimate this lakitu to much or it will be the end of that life (note: do not over estimate him either).
No one ever knew but the goomba's where hiding a secret identity. You may know and love these mushrooms as goombas but they are really called Jimmy!!! Jimmy is a common name for a retard but if you have ever [played mario superstar baseball, jimmy runs super fast and is not that smart for wearing two shoes on one foot. So that is how he got the name jimmy.Now,you all must think that Jimmys live in the Mushroom Kingdom but that is so fake!!Jimmys are very poor and live in boxes on the streets on Mushroom Kingdom.They are drug-atics and they sell drugs in their boxes.Well,now i hope you know the real story of the goombas(Jimmy)
Goombas resemble mushrooms very closely. It is important that when playing Super Mario that a Goomba is not mistaken for a mushroom. Goombas are very hard to destroy, however, they appear to be small and weak looking.
("If Goombas are 'very hard to destroy,' I question what is very easy to destroy.")
....where does the resemblance even start?)
(Well, I think it starts here: if you really, really, really stretch it, they have a similar color. The resemblance ends here: if you really, really, really stretch it, they have a similar color.)
A Hyper Spiky Goomba is a Hyper Goomba with a spike on its head. It has extremely powerful attacks, and it itself is not easy to take down, either, with that nasty spike on its head. Ordinarily, their attack power is three, but when Charged, watch out for an incredible nine attack point attack. Mario needs to really stay on his toes with this Goomba.
An Ice Cherbil is a semi-common enemy from Super Paper Mario, found in various locations such as the Yold Desert, the Overthere Stair or the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. These blue counterparts of Cherbils blow icy clouds at the four heroes, which can freeze them in a block of solid ice. Shaking the Wii Remote repeatedly is the only way to break the icicle. Ice Cherbils are also immune to ice attacks, as their name implies, although they can still be frozen.
(It's immune to ice, but it's not immune to ice? What? -TheDarkStar)
Curiously, instead of running away from the invincible Mario, the K-9s will foolishly continue to home in on Mario, running right into him and being instantly destroyed.
- Whenever a Kaboom starts to run or makes a quick turn, it makes a noise similar to tires screeching.
- Occasionally, in Donkey Kong 64, Kabooms can be heard saying "C'mon" in a very Daffy Duck-like voice. Also, whenever a Kaboom is defeated, all that remains of them is a pile of ash with two blinking eyes on top.
- In Donkey Kong Country 2, when first seen, Kabooms can be identified from regular TNT barrels, as their lack of education has led to the N being written with the sloping line facing the wrong way. However, if the player picks one up and puts it back down, the barrel will be written correctly, though Kaboom will erupt from it once more after a few seconds.
- Most think Kackle is the 5th scariest thing in a Nintendo game.
Klamber 50% spider 50% crab 100% annoying.
(On March 30th 2008, the content on the Klepto page was replaced with a cut & paste of the Wikipedia article about Infocom, a well-known publisher of Interactive fictions games. The vandalism was reverted nine hours after it was made, but the vandal soon struck back and replaced the content with that of another Wikipedia page, this time the article about the Star Wars character Jango Fett (a reference to Klepto's Japanese name). Because of the sheer length as well as the amount of broken coding involved, those revisions aren't directly archived on BJAODN.)
Apparently wearing a small crown is enough to make you king, but ones from Burger King aren't enough to make your girlfriend call you her majesty. I suppose that's another story.

- Without their helmet and shield, Koindozers resemble Barney the Purple Dinosaur.
(Well, this statement isn't relevant, but it's not far off...)
The Koopa Troop [...] is a militaristic dictatorship led by Bowser, King of the Koopas. [...] According to Kammy Koopa in Paper Mario, the motive for the clan is to have revenge against all who have treated Koopas poorly. However, most of their clear goals some based entirely on Bowser's own interest.
("The fine example of imposing a little too much darkness in what is an otherwise fantasy, gleeful series aimed at all ages." - BLOF)
The Koopa Troop is unstoppable. Bowser has an unlimited supply of soldiers; the Koopa Troop also has an massive army such as (with tanks), a maritime navy (with battleships), an air force (with airships), and a space fleet with massive spacecrafts as seen in the Super Mario Galaxy series. Despite having such a huge military, the Koopa Troop is continuously defeated by the legendary Mario Brothers, the heroes of the Mushroom Universe, as well as those who assist the Mario Bros. on their missions to protect the Mushroom Universe (such as Toads).
("How can you be defeated if you're unstoppable!?" -BLOF)
("By the way, I would like to point out the absurd nature of this paragraph in general. Unlimited supply of soldiers? In a video game? Maritime navy? Air force? Space fleet? I don't see any of that. I see creatures just trying to walk into Mario." - BLOF)
- Kidnapping and marrying Princess Peach.
The Koopa Troopas' most known caracterist is their shells, that resmbles turtles' shells (this fact has formed a rumor that Koopa Troopas are turtles). Another famous caracterist is their shell's protection that can be knocked, attacking other enemies (as seen in many platform games).
Koopa Troopas' shells comes in four colors: green, red, yellow and blue. The most known are the green and red ones, specially, the green ones.
All Koopa Troopas have a gold-yellow skin and a big snout. They also have light brown joints at their chests and abdomen (as seen in Bowser), however, this part of their body are covered with their shells.
Koopa Troopas also use shoes of the same color of their shells.
In the course of the Mario franchise, Koopa Troopas are seen to have English as their native language. In the games that character's voices aren't shown speaking phrases, Koopa Troopas make owl-like sounds, having English just legenged. This can be because Koopa Troopas have their own language, that Mario (or other characters) can understand. In Paper Mario series, all Koopa Troopas knows only speak English. Also having Koopa Troopas partners speaking this same language, through speaking bubbles.
Koopa Troopas have their gender differences, being male or female. An exemple is a Mario Party 5 mini-game called Flower Shower. This mini-game presents the marriage of two Koopa Troopas (one using a bow tie [a common man garment] and other using a bow [a common woman garment]).
Are not known if the Koopa Troopas' reproduction is sexually or asexually, however, are known that they born from eggs, just like Yoshis.
- The Krashes in Donkey Kong 64 also strangely resemble the current design of a Kritter, even though the Kritters were not redesigned until DK: King of Swing, 6 years later.
- Some one thinks Kroc is the 8th scariest thing in a Nintendo game. He also thinks Kroc uses King K Rool's vocals.
Kuff 'n' Klout (also known as the Kremling Twins) are extra-big, beefed-up Kremlings in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble. Even stronger and burlier than the massive Krumples, Kuff 'n' Klout are found only in Krematoa. They first appear in Stampede Sprint and Criss Kross Cliffs, and they even have their very own underground level, called Tyrant Twin Tussle, where they attack by playing a game of leapfrog and by racing about the screen, shoulder to shoulder.
The Kremling Twins are nearly invincible, since they can only be defeated by using barrels, by using Squitter's webs, and theoretically, Ellie's trunk squirting and Squawks's egg spitting. If only one of them is defeated, the other will continue to charge and then disappear when Dixie or Kiddy go offscreen, or target them to avenge his fallen counterpart (SNES version), or remain motionless and suddenly disappear a few seconds later (GBA version). According to the game's credits, Kuff 'n' Klout belong to the "Kremling Kreeps" enemy class.

- Nana's name comes from what some kids call their grandmothers.
- Nana's name suggests that she is a grandmother, possibly to Henry and Orville, as she owns the key to their room.
After being hit with enough eggs, Naval Piranha succumbs to the abuse and is defeated.
If they are jumped on/hammered at the wrong time, they will poof and leave a log (also known as a decoy) behind, meaning the attack will be a miss, then run back into battle while falling from the top screen having their arms up high and landing safely with style.
Nosedozers are simply damaging Bandineros. See Bandinero.
- In Yoshi's Story, Pak E. Derm's path blocking is similar to that of Gandalf from Lord of the Rings.
It appears that Beanies use Pestnuts as costumes but this is unknown if Pestnuts are costumes.
Yoshi can reproduce them to yarn balls normally.
Pirate Goomba is a pirate Goomba.
(It should be noted that this line quickly became a running gag around the Super Mario Wiki.)
Pirate Goombaa is an upgraded version of Pirate Goomba.
Pitchforks are Bandineros with a fork cap on their head from Wario Land: Shake It!. Not only cyan Pitchforks are in Wario Land: Shake It!: also lila-pink Pitchforks exists. These are a combination of a yellow Bandinero and a cyan Pitchfork, because they will jump.
As seen on the image identifying a Pitchfork on this article, their threat is 2/3.

("What the heck is an Astrogoomba?")
A Pikku is a tentacle-like enemy that appears in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins and is found only in the last stage of the Pumpkin Zone, where the witch is fought. There are only two Pikku found in the level. The Pikku simply hop back and forth, getting in the way of Mario. It can be defeated with a single stomp.

"I'm Rainbow Shell, and I love Wendy!"
Spine Koopa, Super Mario Kworlds
Rainbow Shell is the tenth koopaling of Bowser's. He is a the only koopa with cruches. He has hair almost like Ludwig's, exept it has pointed edges. Rainbow Shell is in world eight with Bowser, his castle is Koopa Clown Car shaped at the bottom, and the top like the Reznor's fortress.
("Who's the 9th Koopaling?")
Rey Boo seems a bit on Big Boo. He has his eyes are closed, but... he is lighter, and then he will again be the same color!
("This makes no sense.")
They always seem to have a stupid grin on their face and are sometimes seen with their tongue hanging out; also, their eyes perpetually stare in different directions, which may imply that they suffer from divergent strabismus.
("Hmm, what do we know about the biology and related subject of the Donkey Kong universe, really?")
These are enemies found in the Subspace Emissary also see [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The escort the Ancient Minister brings with him is a R.O.B squad?! There are some that fire beams and others that fire missiles.
There are other enemies that will appear and try to impede your progress. Good luck! Don’t lose! And don’t run away!
There are three types:
("What a great strategy: Don't lose! I'll keep that in mind.")
- Rocky Wrenches look a lot like Monty Moles and use an attack pattern similar to them; they also have shells similar to those of Buzzy Beetles; this could make them a cross between the two. (Go ahead and picture how that could have been accomplished)
("We really needed that mental image.")
- Their name is a pun on Samuri, and Guy.
- They could be a spicies of Shy Guy they might have a mask on, because the bearded ones beards don't move when they talk. Possibally because the makers of Super Paper Mario can't do that.
- A prize won by a character named Tino in the TV Show The Weekenders would go on to resemble Scram, although, due to the obscurity of the character, it is likely that this resemblance is coincidental.
During the fight, various shiny paper minions (e.g. Goombas, Koopa Troopas, and Shy Guys) will occasionally break off of Shiny RoboBowser's armor. While they don't actually do anything interesting, Shiny RoboBowser can absorb them at any time to repair his armor and recover health at around 25 HP per minion.
("Doing nothing interesting does not make it a shining affair! It makes it trash!")

Small Spiders are large purple spiders[...].
- Although it is unknown why a Smeech kisses Yoshi, it could be that they are in love with him.
Names in other languages
The name Snoodle, may be the words snail, an small animal and noodle, another word for pasta.
A Snufit Ball is a small black orb that Snufits spit out of their tubular mouths at Mario in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. They can easily be avoided, but will hurt Mario by one damage point if he touches them.
(While deleted, Snufit Ball lives on in the memory of the Super Mario Wiki users who wish to see its article aggressively recreated someday.)
("Someone give this man a medal.")
When attacked, they split into three smaller Sproing-Oings, giving the attacker another thing to worry about.
- In an early scene in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, one of the Hammer Bros. actually refers to Baby Mario as a "spud". However, he was not referring to the enemy Spud.
This statue doesn't move, athough he can only stay in one place.
Despite being the final boss, Shadoo (with the heroes' dark clones' HP added altogether) is stronger than Super Dimentio. Also the Tower Power Pokey, Gooper Blooper, Mizzter Blizzard and Bowser in Paper Mario Sticker Star have more HP and attack then Super Dimentio.
Sad Articuno tries to cry. but... dry bones and sad articuno tries someday.

The Torpedo Ted was launched from offscreen, therefore, it's launcher was never shown....i hate my life
Torpedo Teds have very smiling grins on their faces, which means that their arms are more farther away from the face.
("Guess they got over their depression.")
Torpedo Teds first appeared in Super Mario World and resided in Soda Lake. Mario and Yoshi encountered Torpedo Teds during their adventures in Dinosaur Land. Torpedo Teds moved fairly fast and could be hard to avoid due to the narrow pathways within Soda Lake. This enemy can be defeated with a star, because this sprite was not progammed for invincibility glitch because: They give many lives when "bounce" in the player. But this star may be in code or by the level editor.
("You can see the editor's neurons progressively dying as the sentence continues.")
- The enemy resembles a totem pole.
- In Mario Kart 64, the track ( in Mario Kart Wii) is green in color and imprisoned behing bars for unknown reasons. Fans named this thwomp and it is rumored he is improsoned for helping Mario reach a Star. It Returns in Mario Kart Wii but it not green in color and looks like the current thwomps.

- When a Mini-Yux is in the presence of its greater being, an unbreakable shield will be created around the main Yux unit; the only way to abolish this shield is to destroy all of Mini-Yux in the way.
- Mini-Yux are a variety of Yux that have been created to serve and protect their greater being.
- Mini-Z-Yux are small, cone shaped offspring of the Z-Yux. The Mini-Z-Yux have an identical mission to that of a regular Yux: They must shield the Z-Yux from harm as it attacks opponents. One Mini-Z-Yux will reproduce per turn. As with the Mini-Yux, the player must eradicate the Mini-Z-Yux in order to break down the barrier protecting the Z-Yux.
- Mini-X-Yux are the protectors of the X-Yux. Mini-X-Yux are small, blue cone shaped creatures, of which, two are spawned to protect its greater being per turn.
- Thus, to attack Sir Grodus in a no-holds-barred fashion, one must annihilate all Grodus Xs.
