Bandineros are enemies from Wario Land: Shake It! The red Bandinero is the most common type encountered in the game. They are the minions of the Shake King and somewhat resemble Pirate Gooms. The name "Bandinero" is a combination of "bandit" and "dinero", the Spanish word for "money".

Bandineros have a few sub-species, including the Floating Bandinero, Pitchfork, Boomdinero, and Buccanero.


Red Bandinero[edit]

Red Bandineros are the most common species in the whole game. They are harmless to Wario, so it is easy for him to defeat these enemies. 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 are very similar to red Bandineros, however, yellow Bandineros are capable of jumping.

White Bandinero[edit]

White Bandineros are the rarest of the common Bandineros. They are always found sleeping, or in a dizzy state. If Wario shakes them, they will wake up and drop a big Garlic. When awoken, white Bandineros will act like a normal red Bandinero.

Golden Bandinero[edit]

The Golden Bandinero

Like every other golden enemy in Wario Land: Shake It!, golden Bandineros hold a lot of golden coins. They appear in most stages with the mission "Defeat the golden enemy". Their color scheme differs to that of common Bandineros:
