First appearance Wario Land 4 (2001)

Butatabi is a pig-like enemy from the Game Boy Advance game Wario Land 4. They are drawings that are brought to life by the pig-like painter Hoggus, and they can only be found in the level Doodle Woods.

A similar species known as Denden is another creation of Hoggus' which can be found in the same area. These enemies only attack in one way. They fly from side to side trying to jab Wario with the spike on its head. Jumping on it causes it to fall to the ground.

Butatabi also makes an appearance in Super Mario-kun. As in Wario Land 4, they are brought to life from Hoggus's drawings and attack Wario.
