Gaos are enemies that appear in Super Mario Land. Gaos are sphinx-like enemies that can only be found in levels of the first world, the Birabuto Kingdom. They are servants of King Totomesu.


Gaos are stationary enemies that attack by spitting fireballs at Mario. They can even shoot fireballs backward, meaning Mario is not even safe when he gets behind one. Defeating a Gao is simple as Mario can jump on its head to defeat it. Mario can also toss Superballs at them as well.
