Variants

Munchelangelos are mouse enemies who appear in the S.S. Caviar in Wario: Master of Disguise. They are normally found walking around an area and are harmless when passed by quickly. However, if Wario stays close to one for too long, it will attack by jump-charging in an attempt to bite him. They can be defeated with any attack. Their name is a pun on Michelangelo, a famous Italian Renaissance artist. Along with the other mice enemies in the game, they can occasionally be seen lifting their heads up, allowing a pair of eyes to peek out, suggesting they are actually a smaller creature in a costume. Six Munchelangelos appear in the game.

The Ratfael is a slightly stronger, orange variant of this enemy.

In-game description[edit]
