Parent Species Wiggler

Tropical Wigglers[1] are long, colorful Wiggler variants resembling inchworms wearing floppy purple hats. They first appear in Super Mario Odyssey, where they appear in the Lost Kingdom and the Underground Moon Caverns in the Moon Kingdom.[2] They are not aggressive, and are in fact described with such terms as "genial" and "pleasant"; however, their spiked bodies can still cause them to unwittingly damage Mario. They move by stretching their bodies outward before contracting, much like an inchworm. They often do this across pathways; this, combined with their coloration, has earned them the nickname "traffic lights of the island."[1] Mario is capable of capturing it to travel over the Poisoned Water or lava that fills the area, but it can be defeated by having it fall into a pit of Poison Water or lava or by throwing a hammer at it as a Hammer Bro, like it can be seen in the Moon Kingdom.
