First appearance Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (1994)

Pikkarikun are small thundercloud enemies that appear in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. They sport an impish face and what seems to be a lamp cord and float above Wario. When they flash, they drop lightning bolts down on him. They are invincible and chase Wario through levels, but cannot go through walls and may get stuck if there is a wall in front of it.

If their lightning bolts hit enemies, they turn into 10 Gold Coins.

The powerful thunderbolt that can even take down allies.
It is a cloud with its eyes tightly closed, flying high in the sky. If you stay in the same place for even a moment, it will flash and drop thunderbolts. You can't beat it, so just run away from it.
