First appearance Wario Land 3 (2000)

Shoot is one of the bosses in Wario Land 3, found in A Town in Chaos. He is a hare that plays soccer with a Koopa Troopa-like tortoise as his goalkeeper and with a crowd (composed of Spearheads and Para-Gooms) cheering for him. Wario must jump on Shoot (which turns him into a ball) and knock him into the goal past the tortoise three times before Shoot does the same to him, somewhat similar to traditional soccer. However, when Shoot tries to knock Wario into the goal, the tortoise will flinch, giving Shoot the point. The tortoise can be stunned by Wario's attacks, however, and he will revert both Wario and Shoot back to normal if he is reached in ball form. Upon defeat, Shoot jumps off-screen and the goalkeeper withdraws and elevates Wario to the red treasure chest.

His location, appearance, name, and behavior imply that he is related to Dunk, a basketball playing boss in Wario Land II.
