Sprite of a Kushimushi from Wario Land 3
First appearance Wario Land 3 (2000)
Vine Slime

Kushimushi are enemies encountered in Wario Land 3 from the Wario Land series. They are small beetles with rake-like mandibles. They can be found walking on trees and climbing on vines, similar to Hoopsters. If Wario touches their spiky heads, he will fall. To defeat them, Wario must touch a non-spiky side. However, if they are in the middle of turning, the spikes will not hurt Wario.
