Ty-Foos are rare enemies that first appear in Super Mario 3D World. They are large white Foos with black and yellow eyes and large purple lips. They appear only in two levels: Ty-Foo Flurries and Gigantic Seasick Wreck. They are very similar to Fwooshes. Their name is a pun on "typhoon", a name given to a violent tropical hurricane.
Ty-Foos function more as obstacles rather than enemies, even though players will take damage if they make contact with them. They blow a strong gust of wind that pushes the player and projectiles, such as Fire Flower fireballs, in the opposite direction, usually into another obstacle such as spikes or a pit. Heavy enemies such as Bullies are unaffected by the Ty-Foos' gust. Most Ty-Foos are stationary, but some can move left and right while blowing. They can be stunned with fireballs and boomerangs, but Ty-Foos can be defeated only by star invincibility, an Invincible leaf, Mega Mushroom, or Golden Statue Mario, though the player may lose a life because they float over bottomless pits.
