In gameplay, Mantas are only encountered in
Lava Mountain Zone 2, where they usually appear in groups. The player meets them during the Zone's grinding sections, where they fly ahead of the player and drop flaming bombs on the Grind Rails. Normally, these bombs can damage the player upon touch.
Mantas cannot be defeated by regular means, as the player's focus is on avoiding their bombs until they start pulling back. Occasionally, the player can pull one of the local yellow
switches to raise barrier gates further up the route. The Mantas on the Grind Rails will then crash into the barrier gate, destroying both the gate and themselves in the process.
Like many new enemies in , the Mantas' name has not been listen in any official source. Instead, they are referred to as "manta" in the game's source code.
