Rendered game model of Snail
|First appearance||Super Mario Bros. Wonder (2023)|
Snails are enemies from Super Mario Bros. Wonder that are introduced in the level Bulrush Coming Through!. They are green snails with a pink shell. As snails, they move slowly both on the ground, on the sides of a pipe and on floating blocks, but some are also seen climbing up background walls of Semisolid Platforms front side. When stomped, they are launched out of their shells, much like Beach Koopas, and, after recovering from the dizziness, attempt to get back in it. When Snails are eaten by Maw-Maws, their shells are spat out. Similar to Koopa Shells, their shell can then be picked up and used as a weapon or projectile against other enemies.
Big variants also appear in some levels with them with the same characteristics.
