Konotako are enemies in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. They are winged, bomb-like octopus monsters. They reside on Mt. Teapot and are encountered in Course 10 and Course 13. Konotako attack by hovering over intruders and self-detonating. The suction cups on their undersides allow the Konotako to latch on to Wario's head, therefore ensuring the self-destruction was successful.

In a nutshell, it is an octopus monster whose body is a bomb. It can be easily defeated by stepping on it from above, but if you approach it from below, it will stick to you with its suckers. Moreover, it is a nasty thing that self-destructs as it is.
