Smogrins[1][2] are enemies that appear in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They are purple clouds with glowing eyes and sharp teeth, and they move back and forth. They come in three different sizes: a small variant, that is followed by smaller, faceless clouds that can be stomped on without damaging the enemy, as well as a medium variant and a big variant. All three variants can be defeated with a single stomp. Their English name comes from "smog" and "grin".[2]
