Attacks Shooting Bullet Bills

Bill Blasters are the little cannons that the Bullet Bills are launched from. There are also bigger Bill Blasters that launch Banzai Bills. Standing next to one will prevent them from firing a Bullet Bill, similar to how Piranha Plants won't come out of Pipes Mario is standing next to. In games like Super Mario World and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the characters do not see the Bullet Bills being launched from any Bill Blasters. In the New Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Galaxy games Mario can see Bullet Bills and Banzai Bills being launched away.


Paper Mario series

In Paper Mario, Bill Blasters are mainly fought in Koopa Bros. Fortress after the Koopa Bros. activate them onto Mario and his friends. Mario and co. should avoid the incoming Bullet Bills and attack the Bill Blasters. In battle, the Bill Blasters mainly attack by launching one or two Bullet Bills at a time. It is wise to use Bombette's Bomb attack to deal more damage to them.

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Bill Blasters are seen in the Pirate's Grotto. They act very much the same as they did in the previous game. The Bill Blasters have high defense and are impervious to fire so the best way to take them out is with Piercing Blow or Bobbery's Bomb technique.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Bill Blasters are enemies that appear on the Beanbean Kingdom side of Stardust Fields. They don't actually appear on the overworld, but fight alongside Fighter Flies They shoot out Bullet Bills that can be jumped on, but don't affect the cannons when done so. They have 5 health.
