Banzai Bills are recurring enemies in the Mario series. They are an extremely large variety of Bullet Bills that first appeared in Super Mario World. Although they seem difficult to defeat, they can be defeated simply by jumping on it.


Super Smash Bros. Melee

They are one of the hazards for the Princess Peach's Castle stage. These hazards are common in the Castle stage and inflict damage on contact. They appear from the east or west side of the stage and plunge onto the castle, creating a large explosion. If a character gets caught in the explosion, massive damage will be inflicted on him/her and he/she will be KO'd without a way to recover. However, Banzai Bills can be easily avoided.

New Super Mario Bros.

They have a purplish tint to them, and are shot by Banzai Bill Blasters and travel very slowly, instead of coming from an unknown source as in Super Mario World and traveling quite fast.

Super Princess Peach

They also appear in Super Princess Peach, introducing with it a red, more dangerous version with the Rage Vibe, the Mad Banzai Bill.

Super Mario Galaxy

They appear in the last level, Bowser's Galaxy Reactor and is shot from a Banzai Bill Blaster, as with New Super Mario Bros. These Banzai Bills cannot be defeated, and is hard to avoid, because of their size and speed. Even worse, two Bullet Bills fly with each Banzai Bill.

Super Mario Galaxy 2

Banzai Bills appeared in Super Mario Galaxy 2 as well. They appear first in Sky Station Galaxy, the first galaxy. They also appeared in Bowser´s Galaxy Generator.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, they appear mainly in World 7. They can home in on Mario in one level in World 9.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the cannon operater Fyer has a Banzai Bill sewn on his sleeve.

Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

In Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Bowser fights a Wiggler for a Banzai Bill.

Mario Kart 7

Banzai Bills are shot randomly out of the cannon instead of Bullet Bills in Airship Fortress.

Mario Party: Island Tour

They have a board named after them called Banzai Bill's Mad Mountain. It is assumed that they will appear on that board and in this game.
