Harimen Zetto are enemies in Wario Land 4. As the name suggests, they are a stronger version of the Spiky, differentiated by their black shell.

Unlike with Spikies, performing a standard Smash Attack around a Harimen Zetto will not flip it over, instead causing it to walk towards Wario. To flip a Harimen Zetto, Wario must either perform a Super Smash Attack nearby, throw a rock or a regular enemy at it, or hit its underside with his head from below. Enemies thrown at a Harimen Zetto are defeated, and heavy enemies such as Ringosukī can be used to defeat a Harimen Zetto instantly. They can also be defeated instantly by Fat, Frozen, or Zombie Wario, or by rolling into them. When defeated, they yield three Silver Coins, the most out of any enemy in the game. Wario loses a Gold Coin (or equivalent if he does not have at least 500 points) if he is hit by them.

Harimen Zetto are fairly rare to encounter in Normal mode, only appearing in Monsoon Jungle and The Big Board, as well as some pink areas. In S-Hard mode, most Spikies are replaced by Harimen Zetto.
