Sprite of Fauster from the NES version of Wario's Woods.

Fauster[1] is the first of the many bosses that Toad faces in Game B of the Round Game mode in the Nintendo Entertainment System version of the game Wario's Woods. His boss battle takes place in the ninth round of the Game B mode. He is a purple, bat-winged, simian-like creature in red jester-like clothes who wields a trident. Fauster has the ability to eliminate all bombs on-screen. Like the other bosses in the game, he is also able relocate himself to different positions of the battlefield. If he re-materializes on Toad, Toad will be instantly defeated. He is also capable of summoning and throwing enemies around the stage. Fauster's name is likely derived from the titular character of the Faustian legend.
