Model of a red Gnawsher
|First appearance||Super Mario Bros. Wonder (2023)|
Gnawshers are Chomp-like enemies with wings and golden teeth that chomp through blocks, other enemies, collectibles, or items. Red variants can also be found, where they instead chase enemies or the player, attempting to bite them. They appear prominently in a level with their own name, Gnawsher Lair.
Their name is a combination of "gnaw" and "gnasher".
