Hotheads appear as enemies in Super Mario World. They will continually slide around all sides of a platform. If Fire Mario throws fireballs at one, the power-up will only make them bigger.

Hotheads are usable items in multiple Super Smash Bros. games. When thrown, they will stick to a platform and slide around all sides of it. If opponents attack one's Hothead, it will grow bigger and deal more damage.
