Magons[1] are a species of monsters appearing in Wario World. They are first seen in Greenhorn Forest. With a few punches, they can be defeated. Small Magons can be defeated in one hit, while large Magons take from 1-3 hits, depending on which type they are. Forest, Skeletal, and Clown Magons require one hit while all future versions require three.

Every Magon or Magon-like enemy encountered has a large and small version. The small Magons seen in Greenhorn Forest would not hurt Wario, but in later levels, they would have a bite attack. The large Magons, Skeletal Magons, and Snowmen try to hit Wario with a mere swipe. The large Clowns, Wolves, Puppet Magons, and Mummy Magons swipe too, but they also have a much more powerful tail spin that knocks Wario out for a few seconds. Any large Magon may also make a slide attack, and while it does not do damage, it will dislodge whatever Wario is carrying. They must be stunned with a punch or three punches (starting in Shivering Mountains) first, then Wario had to execute a Piledriver, Wild Swing-Ding or Power Throw to defeat them, although a regular throw is effective as well, unlike many stronger enemies.

Other varieties of Magons would appear is later levels, including Skeletal Magons, Clowns, Snowmen, Wolves, Puppet Magons and Mummy Magons. Each Magon species gradually attacks at faster rates, with the earlier variations attacking at slower rates than the later variations.
