Teruteru are enemies found in Wario Land 3 from the Wario Land series. They are ghost-like creatures who attach to Wario's head and makes the screen dark, preventing the player from seeing. To get rid of this enemy, Wario has to hit a wall or a solid object. When floating, it can be defeated with a normal Attack or a Smash Attack.
