A Futamogu from Wario Land 3.
First appearance Wario Land 3 (2000)
The Vast Plain

Futamogu are uncommon obstacles early in the game Wario Land 3. They resemble cheerful red moles with a striped platform over their heads. If Wario stands on them, their faces turn angry; however, they have no means of attack. They only appear in Out of the Woods and The Vast Plain, where their sole purpose is to act as a roadblock to keep Wario from reaching certain Treasure Chests. Once Wario learns how to Ground Pound, he can knock them lower into their holes, and gain entry. They do not appear in later levels, due to no longer being useful as a roadblock.

A similar-acting Prince Froggy appears in A Town in Chaos.
