Hanging Blow Hard
Hungry plant
Swinging Claw

Tailies are enemies appearing in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They are green pitcher plant-like enemies that hang from the ceiling with vines attached. The player is able to push these vines downwards and gain momentum to swing forward, which is how the enemy is defeated. They also periodically release Spike Balls.

During the Wonder Effect quiz in Taily's Toxic Pond, for every question, there are three different colored Tailies present, one for each answer, and the player needs to pull on the corresponding colored vine to answer correctly. If three questions are answered right, the player is rewarded a Wonder Seed.
