Torpedo Base

A Lobb[1] is an enemy in the Virtual Boy game Mario Clash. They appear to be black boxes with a hole in the top, where a hand comes out. Lobbs attack by, as their name states, lobbing Iron Balls at Mario. The balls are capable of stopping a thrown shell. They have to be stunned from the side before being dispatched. They greatly resemble Torpedo Bases from Super Mario World.
