First appearance Super Mario Bros. Wonder (2023)

Skedaddlers are enemies appearing in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They are mammalian creatures resembling ground squirrels, covered in mainly orange and white fur, and sporting a black shell on their back. Their name comes from "skedaddle", a slang term meaning "to run away", referring to their behavior when a player approaches them. Skedaddlers appear in the levels Scram, Skedaddlers! and Wiggler Race Mountaineering! in Pipe-Rock Plateau, the first world of the game.

Skedaddlers' attack method is to spit seed-like projectiles at the player in a similar manner to Birdo, which fly horizontally until they hit something. These projectiles can interact with other objects, such as breaking peanut boxes. Skedaddlers stand in place until approached (either by a player or by an incoming Koopa Shell), at which point they flee to the opposite direction, running until they meet a wall or dead end. If they get sufficiently away from the player, they stop and start shooting again. Some Skedaddlers also hold items over their heads or have coins trailing behind them. In Scram, Skedaddlers!, one holds the level's Wonder Flower over its head, while another holds a Wonder Seed.

A character in Elephant form can use their trunk to hit a Skedaddler's projectiles, which will cause it to spit faster and darker projectiles. After hitting five in a row, coins will fall from above, and the Skedaddler will reset to its usual projectiles.[1] Yoshis can also swallow a Skedaddler's projectiles and fire the projectiles back at them or at other enemies.
