Bandineros are enemies and minions of the Shake King in Wario Land: Shake It! Multiple color variants under the Bandinero handle appear in the game, all of which are harmless to Wario and can be defeated with any attack, with the red Bandinero being the most common type encountered. Their name is a blend of "bandit" and "dinero", a Spanish word for "money".

Bandineros have several derivatives, including the Floating Bandinero, Pitchfork, Boomdinero, and Buccanero.


Red Bandinero[edit]

Red Bandineros are the most common species in the whole game. Most walk from side to side on a platform, turning around at an edge or a wall; others can be found standing in one place. If Wario shakes a red Bandinero, a head of garlic may pop out. The red Bandinero assumes the role of the Wanderin' Goom from the original Wario Land and the Marumen from Wario Land 4.

Yellow Bandineros jump up and down. Most of them do so in one place, while others move forward while jumping.

White Bandinero[edit]

White Bandineros are an uncommon kind of Bandinero. They are always found sleeping or in a dizzy state. If Wario shakes them, they wake up and drop a big head of garlic. When awoken, white Bandineros act like a normal red Bandinero.

Golden Bandinero[edit]
