In two instances during the game, Mario and his party encounter a dog-like monster called Belome whom they must battle.
Mario first encounters Belome fairly early in the game in Kero Sewers. Mario and Mallow (who is Mario's only companion at this point) battle the monster, but after a few turns, Belome approaches and swallows Mallow whole. After Mario does enough damage, Belome will release Mallow, but may eat him again. If Mario falls while Mallow is in Belome's stomach, the game will end.
Mario encounters Belome again at Land's End, fairly late in the game, this time with his full party. During this battle, Belome will randomly approach any member of Mario's party and swallow them whole. However, he will almost immediately spit them back out and create a clone of them to fight alongside him.
