Pidgit (ドドリゲス, Dodoriguez) is an enemy that first appeared in Doki Doki Panic and Super Mario Bros. 2 as a common enemy. Pidgits are purple birds that travel on magic carpets. They have orange beaks, round eyes, and red feet.

Origin[edit]

Pidgit first appeared as a enemy in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, which was later released in America as Super Mario Bros. 2. They fly on their magic carpets, and then swoop down to attack the player. The player can jump onto their carpet and threw them off. The carpet can be used to travel across the stage for a certain amount of time. They occasionally reappear in later Mario games, such as Super Mario World and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.

In both Melee and Ultimate, Pidgit appears as a 2D sprite on the Mushroom Kingdom II stage, using its sprite from Super Mario All-Stars.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

As a stage element[edit]

Pidgits appear as elements in the Mushroom Kingdom II stage. They will fly around the stage on their magic carpets, which serve as a moving soft platform; however, it can also carry the player past the blast lines on either side of the stage. As with the rest of the stage, Pidgits appear in their sprite form from the Super Mario All-Stars version of Super Mario Bros. 2. Pidgit also appears as a trophy.

Trophy description[edit]

Pidgit's trophy in Melee.

Pidgits are wingless birds enchanted by the vegetable-hating Wart to be bearers of bad dreams. They live in Subcon, a land contained within Mario's dreams, where they fly around on magic carpets. Mario and friends were able to use these carpets for short distances once they dislodged the piloting Pidgit.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a stage element[edit]

Pidgits reprise their role as part of the returning Mushroom Kingdom II stage. As before, they are depicted in their 16-bit form.
