History[edit]

Super Mario series[edit]

Super Mario 3D Land[edit]

Stingbies make their debut in Super Mario 3D Land. They are common in levels taking place in the sky or over large pits. Stingbies fly at a certain height and cannot move up or down; rather, they patrol the area to find Mario or Luigi. When a Stingby spots Mario or Luigi, they chase after them slowly. These enemies can be easily defeated by any form of attack. They slightly resemble Diggas from Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Super Mario 3D World[edit]

Stingbies reappear in the Wii U game, Super Mario 3D World in several levels. They behave the same as they do in Super Mario 3D Land. They first appear in World 1 in the level Switch Scramble Circus and later appear in Conkdor Canyon from World 2, as well as Switchboard Falls in World 3.

Super Mario Odyssey[edit]

Mosquito-like variants of Stingbies known as Urban Stingbies appear in Super Mario Odyssey. They can be found in New Donk City during the night. When an Urban Stingby sees Mario, it charges at him, disappearing if it hits a wall.[2]

Mario Kart 7[edit]

Stingbies make another appearance in Mario Kart 7. They serve as enemies in the battle course, Honeybee Hive. They have a darker color than those in Super Mario 3D Land. They travel in lines through the stage and spin out any fast-moving karts they touch.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker[edit]

With the inclusion of Conkdor Canyon from Super Mario 3D World as a bonus stage in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Stingbies can be encountered once again in the said level. Here, they behave just as they did in their past Mario 3D platform game appearances, chasing the protagonist when they spot him and attempting to ram into him with their stings. Captain Toad is able to defeat Stingbies with an airborne stomp or a well-timed spin.
