Variant of Face Ball

Little Face Ball is an enemy from the game Virtual Boy Wario Land. They are only seen in Stage 10, where three of them are simultaneously released by the Face Ball mini-boss. The three Little Face Balls slowly float towards the ground, potentially harming Wario with their spikes. Once they reach the ground, the Little Face Balls disappear. Three more of them can be produced if Wario bumps the regular Face Ball during its lava attack.

While the Little Face Balls are floating towards the ground, Wario can stomp them, causing them to lose their spikes and fall to the ground, immobile. They wear a stunned expression while in this state. Wario is able to carry and toss them at the large Face Ball, which defeats the mini-boss and opens a sealed door that allows Wario to leave the area. When a Face Ball shrinks after it is defeated, its appearance is identical to a stunned Little Face Ball.

If Wario leaves a stunned Little Face Ball on the ground without touching it, it will quickly disappear.
