First appearance Wario's Woods (1994)

Dovos[1] are ghost-like creatures from Wario's Woods. They are less common than Spuds, Fuzzes, and Squeaks, as common as Spooks, and more common than Beakers and Scrams. They are most formidable in that two bombs are required to destroy them, although they merely change color when hit rather than giving Toad only a limited time to hit them again, as Spooks do.
