Snifit (toy)

Snifit[1][2][3] toys are enemies found in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series. Unlike Shy Guys, they do not wander freely on land. Instead, they stand in one place, charge a winding noise, then shoot five bullets with each successive shot, slightly recoiling them back; after a moment, they return to where they were standing and repeat their routine. Their bullets cannot pass through any solid object, but can destroy Mini Marios 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 Mini Marios safely hop on their head, which can also be performed on Shy Guys. In Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!, they are first encountered on the fourth stage of Jungle Rumble. Their actions are slightly slower than they were in their original appearance, and they have spikes on their head signifying that they can no longer by ridden. In Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, they are found in Cannon Cove and Secret Storage. Their movement speed is the quickest yet, and while they no longer have spikes on their head and look similar to their debut, they retain their lethal touch as in their previous appearance.
