The I Mage Statue Object Protector, or I.M.S.O.P. for short, is a robot built by the I Mage to protect objects after he transforms into his statue form.
Super Mario: An Evil Rising
In it's debut appearance, it appears after a missle heading for Toad Town is transformed into a Banzai Bill by the I Mage Statue. Mario then transformed into Tanooki Mario and went after the Banzai Bill. When Mario got on board, he was challenged by the I.M.S.O.P. When Mario won, the Banzai Bill fell into the ocean near Yoshi's Island.
