A Triceratops[1] is a triceratops-like enemy that Wario encountered in Wario World. As its name implies, it wields a large club. At any time, the Triceratops may charge up and go on a small rampage, swinging its club frantically. The Triceratops is invincible in this state, but the attack doesn't last very long. The club also blocks all frontal attacks, so Wario needs to sneak up on a Triceratops from behind in order to attack it.

After three punches, the Triceratops loses its club and reverts to standing on all fours. In this state, the Triceratops can charge at Wario, a powerful attack that leaves the treasure hunter dazed for a few seconds. After being punched three more times, the Triceratops is knocked out, allowing Wario to use one of his finishing moves on it.

Other varieties of Triceratops include Bony Triceratops[2], Gatorbabies, Snow Beasts, Bears[3], Huge Dolls[4], and Hulking Mummies[5]. Aside from a few costume changes and choice of club (the Snow Beast uses an icicle, for example) , these enemies behave in exactly the same way as Triceratops, though they do get progressively more aggressive.
