Not to be confused with Minicula.

Minikyura[1] are small bat enemies in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, which are infinitely produced by the lone Kurokyura in the first stage of the Pumpkin Zone. They slowly fly away on a diagonal path upon being released. They damage Mario if they fly into him, but can be defeated with any attack. Jumping on a Minikyura is key to reaching a secret goal in the stage.
