Wallops are a type of enemy appearing in Super Mario 3D Land. They look like Whomps, except they are shaped like a fort wall with black eyes and yellow pupils, with mouths and feet. Instead of attempting to squash Mario and Luigi by slamming on the ground when they get too close, Wallops block the player's way by following their movements. Wallops can also jump whenever Mario jumps and then slam the ground. After jumping, there will be a few seconds in which the Wallop will recover, giving Mario or Luigi a chance to pass by it. When the player is a certain distance away from or behind a Wallop, they will be in a state of dormancy, in which their pupils are no longer lit and their feet have retreated into their bodies, until the player is in front of them. Mario or Luigi can destroy them by standing below them when they jump as Statue Mario or Statue Luigi, or turning into a statue above them. They make their first appearance in World 3-1; they also appear in World 6-4, World 8-6, Special 3-5, Special 6-1, Special 8-4, and Special 8-Crown.
