Turtle (Wario World)

Turtles[1] are small, blue, green-shelled enemies from Wario World. They appear exclusively in Shivering Mountains.

When encountered, they are always carrying a large chunk of ice, and they will attempt to obstruct Wario. A Dash Attack, Mega Toss, Piledriver, or Wild Swing-Ding will destroy the ice chunk, revealing the Turtle underneath. Without their ice chunks, Turtles are defenseless and can be knocked out and picked up like most other enemies in the game.

Names in other languages[edit]
