Fryguy is a living fireball that, so far, has appeared solely in Super Mario Bros. 2 and its remakes.
Found in the icy World 4-3, he spews fireballs at the heroes. Since it's impossible to touch him (something he makes blatantly clear in Super Mario Advance 1: "I'm too hot to touch!!!"), the heroes must use Mushroom Blocks to beat him down. Once they do, however, he then splits into four smaller fireballs that attack by bouncing, a possible prototype to the Fire Snake. The heroes must use Mushroom Blocks to beat those down, too. They'll want to try to get all four fireballs down with a single Block, because if they take down less than that, the remaining fireballs go faster and bounce longer, making it harder to defeat them.
A softlock existed in earlier versions of SMB2 where, if you killed one of the flames while shrinking, it would drop off the screen like a normal enemy instead of poofing out. The game would then somehow think that there were still flames left, and thus the door would never appear.
