First appearance Super Mario Land (1989)

Suu[1][2] are spider enemies of the Easton Kingdom found in the game Super Mario Land. They attack by trying to drop on Mario from the ceiling. To defeat them, Mario must avoid getting hit on the Suu's descent, then jump or shoot two superballs at the spider to earn 400 points. Suu only appear in World 3-2 of the Easton Kingdom. A similar enemy named Scuttlebug is introduced later, and appears to share a yellow-striped pattern on its abdomen.
