Armads are armadillo-like enemies that appear in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They first appear in the Sunbaked Desert level Armads on the Roll. Upon seeing a player, an Armad will curl up into a ball and roll at the player. If an Armad is on a slope, it will roll down it. If a player jumps on an Armad, it will be rolled up and can be picked up and thrown. Some Armads have coin trails behind them.
