I fail to see why this is split from Bull's-Eye Bill. This is just a Purple Bullet Bill, but it is a different color, which is not grounds for splitting on its own. Let's merge this with Missile Bill. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 21:10, August 21, 2019 (EDT)

Let's not. They function differently; Bull's-Eye Bills move in an arc until above the ground, and turn toward Mario if they miss him. Guided Bullet Bills still move toward Mario, but they stay in the downward arc movement.

Actually this is just a regular black Bullet Bill that now homes in on Mario and doesn't start blinking until Mario has landed the first hit on the bathtub, at which point it's launched more erratically, so let's merge this with Bullet Bill instead. SmokedChili (talk) 11:55, August 24, 2019 (EDT)
That's half-true. There are really two different colors of the Corona Mountain Bullet Bill: black and blue, which is mentioned in English sources. For some reason, Japanese sources seem to neglect the fact that there is a homing black version, and only mentions that purple is homing as far as I can tell. Regardless, Super Mario Sunshine sources treat the Bullet Bills as color variants, and this too has its own color variants. LinkTheLefty (talk) 13:21, August 24, 2019 (EDT)
The guides also don't cover the Bullet Bills in Mecha-Bowser battle; they fly along the tracks of Merry-Go-Round. Japanese source wise, SMB Encyclopedia says the regular Bullet Bills fly towards Mario (マリオに向かって飛んでくる), which sounds pretty generic and could be interpreted as chasing Mario for the black Guided Bills.

As i already told you, it's NOT just a normal Purple Bullet Bill with a different color. Normal Bullet Bills also looked like this in this game. They also act different. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 06:04, August 25, 2019 (EDT)
