The title of this article is conjectural; an official name for the article's subject has not been found, so it has been given a fitting title by the editors.

The inactive and active Skulls

Skulls serve as the checkpoint in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. They appear as a skull with horns on a pole and an embedded coin slot. In order to active it, Wario must throw a 10-Coin into the coin slot, allowing him to respawn from there if he loses a life. By doing this, the coin slot disappears and the sphere and skull light up. Unlike most other checkpoints, Skulls are usually not found on the direct path to the end of the level, but in separate rooms. They also do not appear in all levels.
