The title of this article is conjectural; an official name for the article's subject has not been found, so it has been given a fitting title by the editors.

A Metal-Head, trying to ram into Wario with its spear.
Sprite of a Metal-Head, from Virtual Boy Wario Land.
This article is about the enemy from Virtual Boy Wario Land. For the song from Donkey Kong Country, see here.

Metal-Heads are lone dungeon dwellers found in Stage 2 of Virtual Boy Wario Land. They are shorter than Wario and sport three viking-styled horns on their heads alongside hair that covers one of their eyes and donning ripped and thick pieces of cloth as coats.

Metal-Heads stay behind sealed wooden doors, waiting for Wario to approach their hiding spot. If he walks close enough, the Metal-Head will break through the door and begin to look around them before charging into Wario with a javelin. Wario can simply dodge the foes by jumping over them. If they hit Wario or he jumps on top of their heads, he will take damage.

Due to their horns, Wario is unable to body slam on them to defeat them. Instead, he must Barge into them when their backs are turned or bump into it, so he can throw it at another enemy.
