M. Bushes are enemies featured only in Paper Mario.


These poisonous bushes are enemies found within the reaches of Jade Jungle. Mario finds them by searching through certain distinctively colored bushes throughout the jungle. While searching for one of the The Fearsome Five, Mario has to enter a battle with four of these dangerous plants. After defeating them, Mario saves the scared Yoshi.


In battle, M. Bushes mainly attack by bitting Mario, and sometimes can even poison him. They also have no actual weakness with descent stats as well. If Mario runs from a group of M. Bushes, in the overworld, the bush will stay where it was before the fight began. It is also impossible to "first strike" an M. Bush, conversely, it is impossible for an M. Bush to "first strike" Mario.
