Wario, Wario Land II

Punches[1] are small enemy creatures associated with the Black Sugar Gang in Wario Land II. They wear football helmets that conceal most of their body and wield a pair of boxing gloves to attack their opponents.

Alongside the Pirate Gooms, Punches are one of the most common enemies in the game. Their attack pattern consists of walking from side to side and trying to hit Wario with their fists. Like Pirate Gooms, Wario cannot Dash into them head-on while they're moving, but they are safe to touch from any other side. Unlike Pirate Gooms, however, Punches become harmless whenever they stop moving. Getting hit by a Punch's attack will cause Wario to lose some coins.

A Punch makes a cameo in Picross NP Vol.7.
