Snifit (toy)

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Snifits[1][2][3] are Snifit toys found in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series. Unlike Shy Guys, they do not wander freely on land. Instead, they stand in one place, wind up with a noise, then shoot five bullets, slightly recoiling backward with each shot; after a moment, they return to where they were standing and repeat their routine. Bullets fired from Snifits cannot pass through any solid object, but can destroy Minis upon contact.

In Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis, they appear in Jungle Hijinks. Exclusively in this game, the player can manually make a Mini jump onto a Snifit's head to ride on top of it. In Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!, they are first encountered in Room 4-4 of Jungle Rumble. Their actions are slightly slower, and they have spikes on their head, indicating that a Mini will break if it tries to jump on a Snifit. In Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, they are found in Cannon Cove and Secret Storage. They move more quickly than their previous appearances, and they no longer have spikes on their head; however, in this game, a Mini still breaks if it jumps on top of a Snifit.
