First appearance Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (1994)

Konotako are enemies in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 that appear to be winged bombs. They reside on Mt. Teapot and are encountered in Course 10 and Course 13. They display multiple suction cups on their undersides. Konotako attack by hovering over intruders and self-detonating. The suction cups allow the Konotako to latch on to Wario's head, therefore ensuring the self-destruction was successful. However, the explosions can only stun Wario, without damaging him at all.

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.
