Ty-foos (originally capitalized as Ty-Foos) are rare enemies that first appear in Super Mario 3D World. They are large white clouds with black and yellow eyes and large purple lips. In their debut, they appear only in two levels: Ty-Foo Flurries and Gigantic Seasick Wreck. Their name is a pun on "typhoon", a name given to a violent tropical hurricane, and Foo, a smaller cloud enemy that exhales clouds rather than wind.

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 only be defeated by Invincible Mario, White Tanooki Mario, Mega Mario, or Lucky Cat Mario, though the player may lose a life because they float over bottomless pits.

In Super Mario Odyssey, Ty-foos appear as enemies in the Snow Kingdom, where they wear Santa hats.[1] Mario can capture them with Cappy, allowing him to blow enemies and certain platforms away using Y Button. Shaking the Joy-Con causes Mario to blow harder. When captured, Ty-foos can also be used to travel across Poisoned Water.[2]
