Togemen are creatures that appear in the Wario Land series, where they appear as enemies. They are small dark-colored creatures with white limbs, wearing a shell covered in spikes, and they jump to move. The Togemen's only appearance is in Wario Land II, although they are similar to the Togemaru from Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. In the original, the masks are white, even on Super Game Boy, while in the Game Boy Color version, the masks are entirely purple, with white being used on other parts of their bodies.

Togemen remain quiet, but when Wario approaches them, they begin to jump in his direction, trying to harm him. Coming in contact with their spikes will cause Wario to take damage and lose coins. To stun them, Wario has to attack their weak undersides or their unprotected back. Another attack or a thrown enemy will defeat the Togemen.
