Arumajiron are armadillo enemies from Donkey Kong for the Game Boy. They appear in the Desert, making their debut in Stage 5-7. They behave just like Rappies and Dotties: they walk in circles around the environment, up walls and on the ceiling, in a moderate speed. They do not hurt Mario, and can only push him. They can be stood on in order to hitch a free ride on their hunched backs, but cannot be picked up nor defeated in any way.
