A Petbottom in The Toxic Landfill

A Petbottom[1] is one of the many enemies that appear in Wario Land 4. They appear only in the Ruby Passage, and resemble a bottle full of a pink liquid, which has a sharp spear attached to the front of the cap. They have legs and they walk back and forth. The only threatening part of a Petbottom is the spear. Wario can defeat a Petbottom by either Smash Attacking the top side of the enemy, ramming the non-sharp side, or by doing a Super Smash Attack nearby; the Petbottom flips upside down and Wario can attack the underside.

The "pet" part of the name stands for "polyethylene terephthalate" (commonly abbreviated as "PET"), a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family used in synthetic fibers such as bottles. The "bottom" part of the name may be a permutation of the word "bottle."
