Guriguri are fireball enemies from the game Mario & Wario that travel along blocks and other objects. To weaken them, Wanda can hit them with her wand to make them smaller and slower, which allows easy passage in low-hanging spaces, although this is not useful for every situation. If they are on breakable obstacles such as Rock Blocks, Wanda can instead simply crack or disable their foothold; this makes them continue to float in a direction until they hit an object, but this can also make them leave the level. They are extremely similar to the Lil Sparkies of Super Mario World.
