The Bullet Bill is a recurring enemy from the Super Mario series and almost all of its spinoff games like Mario Kart, Mario Party, Paper Mario and the many Mario Sports games.

Bullet Bill debuted in the original Super Mario Bros. (1985) and returned in the most sequels.

They are shot from a Bullet Blaster but can also appear out of nowhere and from different directions, in some of the games starting with Mario 64 (1996) the Bullet Bill can also follow Mario like a homing missile.
