First Appearance Donkey Kong (1994)

Tsutanōmen 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, Tsutanōmen are hurled by Donkey Kong. Once they land on a platform, Tsutanōmen 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 Tsutanōmen into the ape boss. The Tsutanōmen themselves can be defeated by getting launched into other members of the same species or into Donkey Kong.
