Lumpy (alternatively Lump, formerly Prince Froggy[1]) is a large frog creature that appears in Wario Land 3. They are large gray frogs and are very lazy. Lumpys' purpose is to block Wario's path, neither moving nor dealing any damage to Wario. Wario must use a Ground Pound or roll off of a slope to move them or simply find another way. To eliminate a Lumpy, Wario must either be Hot Wario, Vampire Wario, or Ice Skatin' Wario. In either of these, Wario merely has to touch them to be destroyed. They are found in several levels. In the North, they are found in Bank of the Wild River, the West in A Town in Chaos, and The Steep Canyon, the South in Above the Clouds, and the East in The East Crater and Forest of Fear.

In The Peaceful Village, there exists a red one which, unlike the immobile gray ones, is struggling to move upwards from a hole. Once Wario obtains the Lead Overalls from The Volcano's Base, he can get past it by causing it to fly out of the hole via a Ground Pound tremor. It is similar to a Futamogu, but unlike Futamogu, which is ordinarily happy when left alone and angry when stepped upon, the red frog is normally angry but looks blissful when stood on, although he also appears to be crying.

In Dr. Mario 64, a single gray Lumpy appears as playable character. In Story mode, Lumpy is sleeping peacefully in the mountains but is disturbed by Mad Scienstein, who rolls it down the mountain. While Dr. Mario dodges Lumpy, Wario is hit by it and is forced to engage it. While still characterized as lazy and struggling to stay awake in its animations, Lumpy is more active here by comparison such as aggressively whipping out its long tongue when performing well.

Lumpy's original English name is shared with the boss from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. It is unclear if it has a connection to the Prince Frog's Glove found in Out of the Woods.
