Not to be confused with Spoing or Sproing-Oing.
First appearance Super Mario Bros. Wonder (2023)

Sproings are yellow-capped acorn-like enemies that first appear in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. When the player gets near, they will stretch upward, with a vine-like coil connecting their head and body. This makes their hitbox much taller, requiring a higher jump to pass over or defeat them. They appear prominently in a course with their own name, Sproings in the Twilight Forest. This course's Wonder Flower is found after defeating a specific Sproing, and its Wonder Effect reflects their behavior by allowing the player to stretch upward and contract downward at will.
