Lava Lotus is an underwater enemy that appears in Super Mario Bros. 3. It remains fixated to the sea bottom and shoots fireballs upward. The fireball travel upward slowly and can pass through other objects.
Lava Lotuses have never appeared again since their debut. In Super Mario World however, a related species, Volcano Lotus, was introduced. It is basically the land counterpart of Lava Lotuses, with a similar appearance and attack pattern.
