They award Mario with a 100 points each. Torions are found only in World 2-3 of the Muda Kingdom, the Marine Pop's level. Torions always swim in groups of three. According to the instruction manual of Super Mario Land, Honen are undead Torions that were eaten by Tatanga.

Three of them come toward you in formation. Since they advance in a straight line, it is easy to defeat them with torpedoes. However, if you fail, they will make a U-turn at high speed, so be careful.
