Appearance and Behaviour
Stingbies resemble a bee. Strangely, their stinger is located on their face.
They chase after Mario and Luigi when they are encountered and the Bros may defeat it by jumping on top of it or by any powerup. These enemies are located mainly in sky levels and can only fly straight unlike other bees which can fly up and/or down.
- A similar enemy called an Urban Stingby appears in Super Mario Odyssey. They at first appear in a larval form, but then grow to their adult form once Mario comes nearby. At that point, they charge. If they hit something, be it friend or foe, the Urban Stingby will self-destruct, dealing damage to anybody near the impact.
