Artwork of a Tsubōn from Mario & Wario
|First appearance||Mario & Wario (1993)|
Tsubōn are pot-shaped enemies with a skull mark in Mario & Wario. They are stationed on walls and ceilings, and routinely spit fireballs. They are sometimes found hanging on breakable obstacles such as Rock Blocks, so Wanda can simply crack or disable their foothold, making them disappear once they hit the ground. However, some Tsubōn must be passed at sections such as elevators or holes, which requires careful timing to get her helpless character by them. Wanda can also hit their projectiles to neutralize them, or hit the diagonal-facing versions on some ceiling to get them to aim in another direction. They are most prominent in LEVEL 5, where they appear in every area.

Get the heck out of here!
A jar-shaped monster that clings to ceilings and walls. It continuously shoots fireballs from its mouth to obstruct your way. Since it is a target, it can be easily broken by knocking it off.
