Variant of Pokey Head

Seedy Pods,[1] also known as Yunbos,[2][3] are a variety of Sanbo Head with yellow flowers and blue skin. They appear only in Bianco Hills and a minicourse in Super Mario Sunshine. When approached, a Seedy Pod burrows underground while launching its seeds at would-be attackers. A Seedy Pod can be defeated by stunning it with water from a safe distance and then jumping on top of it. Once defeated, the Seedy Pod drops a coin (or a Red Coin when in the Red Coin Field). Seedy Pods can be heard singing and seen dancing when one is standing far away. Musical notes even appear above their heads while they are singing. A Seedy Pod can be eaten by a Yoshi when it is in its invincible state.
