A Tulipatooie is a tall, flower-like enemy from Wario World. It only appears in Beanstalk Way. Its name is a portmanteau of "tulip" and "ptooie", an onomatopoeia for spitting.

Tulipatooies perpetually spit out Glue Globes and then suck them back up again. In order to bypass them, Wario must cling to the Glue Globe as it comes out and then immediately jump off. If the Tulipatooie sucks up the Glue Globe while Wario is clinging to it, he will be injured. Tulipatooies cannot be attacked or defeated.

Their behavior, design concept, and name is similar to that of the Ptooie enemy, a plant that blows a Spike Ball over its head.
