First appearance Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (1992)

Masked ghouls[1] are enemies in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins's Pumpkin Zone. They are walking enemies wearing hockey masks with daggers stuck in them, a reference to Jason Voorhees, the main antagonist of the Friday the 13th film series. This enemy's attack manner is similar to a Goomba's, although unlike Goombas, stomping a masked ghoul propels Mario upward.
