Pinwheels[1] are aquatic creatures from Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. They resemble tiny red seahorses with spikes, and first appear in Course No.07 of Mt. Teapot. They dwell in bodies of water, and will curl into a spiked ball if Wario approaches them. They also bear a resemblance to Yurarin and Yurarin Boo of Super Mario Land.
