Snake charmers[1] are enemies in Wario World that are only found in Wonky Circus. They are always found riding Elephants or Cobras. Despite the strength of the enemies they are found on, snake charmers themselves are relatively weak, and can be defeated by any attack. To defeat a snake charmer, however, the enemy they ride must be lifted up for them to fall down first; when snake charmers fall off of the enemy they ride, they become stunned and incapable of attacking.

  • Shogakukan guide (Elephant-riding type): エミーの上に乗っている小さな敵で、笛を吹いてエミーを操る。小さいが、ワリオが持ち上げて攻撃できる珍しいタイプ。[2] (A small enemy that sits on top of Amy and controls her by blowing a whistle. Although small, it is a rare type that Wario can pick up and attack.)
