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. A Seedy Pod typically drops a coin when defeated, but in the Red Coin Field, it drops a Red Coin instead. Seedy Pods can be heard singing and seen dancing when one is standing far away, and are represented by musical notes during this. A Seedy Pod can be eaten by a Yoshi while in its invincible state.
