Some Flying Spades

Flying Spades[1] are flying shovel enemies found in Pecan Sands, in Wario World.

These enemies are rather like Monstrous Magnets; they fly using tiny insect wings and Wario can get to higher places by throwing them headfirst into a soft section of dirt on a wall. They also make the same echoing metal sound upon being knocked down.
