Bats are enemies that appear in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They are seen floating in the air and whenever they spot Mario, they try to swoop him. To defeat them jump on them or spin to knock them away. They are usually found in dark, dank galaxies or haunted galaxies such as the Ghostly Galaxy or the Slimy Spring Galaxy. In Super Mario Galaxy 2, their color is slightly darker than in Super Mario Galaxy 1.
