Raargh from Smb Wonder
First appearance Super Mario Bros. Wonder (2023)
Variant of Magmaargh

Raarghs are fiery enemies that appear in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They are a variety of Magmaarghs that act similarly to Thwomps.

Raarghs only appear in one level—the Deep Magma Bog level Raarghs in the Ruins. They attach themselves to the ground and wait for a player to get near, in which case they charge straight forward in the direction they were facing. If one charges into the environment or another Raargh, they disappear. They are capable of activating Rotating Blocks and ? Blocks. After several seconds, the Raargh will respawn in its original location. According to a Japanese article, Raarghs are very sensitive to heat and stick out their tongues to regulate their body temperature.[1]

Raarghs continue the theme of enemies such as Blargg and Magmaargh having names that include the onomatopoeia "arg" in some form.
