Artwork of a Purupuru from Perfect Ban Mario Character Daijiten
First appearance Donkey Kong (Game Boy) (1994)

Purupuru are enemies in the Game Boy version of Donkey Kong. They are encountered in Stage 7-3. Purupuru behave just like Rappies, Dotties, and Arumajiron: they walk in circles around the environment, up walls and on the ceiling, in a moderate speed. They do not hurt Mario, and can only push them. They can be stood on, but not picked up.

A cute guy who walks trotting along.

Pulls a unique face. It has a big mouth and eyes. You cannot hold it and throw it, but touching it will not cause a mistake. If you get on it, it will become a foothold, so use it well.
