Tsutan'ōmen are enemies in Donkey Kong for Game Boy. They resemble living statuettes, adorned with pharaoh headcloth, and are exclusive to Stage 5-12 of the Desert. Here, Tsutan'ōmen are hurled by Donkey Kong. Once they land on a platform, Tsutan'ōmen get up on their small feet and begin walking forwards and backwards. Mario loses a life if he touches their lateral sides. In order to defeat Donkey Kong, which is mandatory to pass the stage, Mario has to pick up and throw three Tsutan'ōmen into the ape boss. The Tsutan'ōmen themselves can be defeated by getting launched into other members of the same species or into Donkey Kong.
