Most enemies can be defeated by jumping on them once or multiple times, but others are invulnerable to this type of attack. Use the Cat or Tanooki Power-Up to swipe the enemy or the Fire Power-Up to shoot them. The Boomerang Power-Up is also useful and can clear multiple enemies at once. Obviously, the Super Star Power-Up will defeat all enemies simply by touching them but this is a limited Power-Up and cannot be easily obtained like the other Power-Ups.
