Pansers are recurring enemies in the Mario series. Appearing as a plant that opens and expels fireballs, there are three variations of Pansers. Red Pansers are stationary enemies that will shoot fireballs in the direction of the player. Green ones are also stationary but can only shoot fireballs skywards. Blue Pansers, pink in Super Mario Bros. 2, will chase the player while shooting fireballs. Pansers can be defeated by a Starman, a thrown vegetable, or a POW Block.
