Furafurawā are enemies in the game Donkey Kong for the Game Boy. They first appear in the Desert in Stage 5-2. Furafurawā hide in the ground. If Mario approaches them, they pop out of the ground and move left and right slowly until he walks way. As soon as Mario is out of reach, Furafurawā will hide again. Touching a Furafurawā defeats Mario. They can be defeated with the Hammer, but will respawn from the ground instantly.

In Rocky-Valley, Furafurawā have a totally different behavior. They walk around slowly from the left to the right, and sometime shoot out four small seeds that behave like those of a Volcano Lotus. The seeds can be taken out with a hammer. These Furafurawā do not come back if destroyed.

The sprites of the two types of Furafurawā are different as well, with the ones in Rocky-Valley having whiter, rounder petals and leafier stems.
