Blade-Face[1] is an enemy found in the game Virtual Boy Wario Land. They are found throughout Stage 10, emerging from the background as Wario approaches. Blade-Faces float through the air, tracing a circular path and aiming to harm Wario with its blades on either side of its body.

Wario is able to defeat a Blade-Face by performing a jump to the top of its head, causing the creature to fly off the screen. If Wario instead bumps its unprotected jaw during its flight, the Blade-Face will fall to the ground, temporarily stunned. Attacking a Blade-Face with the flames of King Dragon and Sea Dragon Wario causes the Blade-Face to disappear into the background, and returning a short time later. It will also temporarily disappear if it hits any blocks while moving through the air.
