Bow Balloons (ボウバルーン[1], Bō Barūn) are enemies in the Game Boy Advance game Wario Land 4. Bow Balloons are Viking warriors that wear red masks and have green feet. Bow Balloons act as archers and fires poison-tipped arrows that, when they come in contact with Wario, will transform him into Puffy Wario. The Bow Balloons appear in the Monsoon Jungle, The Curious Factory, and many other levels shooting at anything that gets in their way.
