Pidgit is an enemy which appears in the Mario series.
Super Mario series
Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic/Super Mario Bros. 2
Pidgit first appears in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic and later in its western remake Super Mario Bros. 2. In these games, Pidgit appears as a common aerial enemy. Pidgit's first level appearance is in World 1-2.
In the game, Pidgit attacks the player by attempting to swoop right into him/her. As the Pidgit descends from the sky, the player must jump atop it or its carpet and throw Pidgit off to gain a 10 second control of the carpet until the carpet vanishes. This carpet is normally used to reach inaccessible areas in a level.
Pidgit reappears in the Super Mario Bros. 2 game as a part of Super Mario All-Stars and in Super Mario Advance. Instead of its black coloration, its color is changed to blue (purple as depicted in the art).
Mario & Luigi series
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, Pidgets appear as an enemy. Some Pidgets have sacks with them; these sacks contain coins.
Pidgit reappears in Wario's Woods under the name of Black Bat.
In the game, Pidgit appears as one of Wario's monsters who overcame Wanda when Wario replaced Birdo which often happens in gameplay. In the game, Pidgit acts the same as Wanda by dropping extra monsters on Toad. Unlike Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic and Super Mario Bros. 2, Pidgit appears to be able to fly. This means that Black Bat could possibly be a subspecies of Pidgit.
