A Bucket Head[1] is a rare snowman-like enemy in the game Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 that wears a small, red bucket on its sizable head, which has Captain Syrup's trademark skull on it. The chilly creatures are able to launch spiked, icy projectiles from their mouths. These projectiles are unable to leave the surfaces in which they come into contact; instead, they travel along them, following sudden drops, upward cliffs, and the ground until hitting the ceiling. Like most other enemies, Bucket Heads can be flipped over and picked up by Wario. However, they can quickly jump back to their feet; only a body slam can defeat them for good and release the Coin that they, like all enemies, have. They are prominent in tight passageways that require some deft footwork to dodge their projectiles and land jumps on their heads, and appear solely in Sherbet Land.
