|First appearance||Virtual Boy Wario Land (1995)|
Vase-Based is an enemy in Virtual Boy Wario Land. Vase-Based is encountered in Stage 10, in certain hidden areas where a vase is found. Whenever a vase is tipped to the side by Wario, a Vase-Based is released and will begin to jump around the room, attempting to harm Wario with its three spears. Wario can stun a Vase-Based by jumping on the unprotected part of the creature’s head, which temporarily blunts its spears.
Vase-Based can be defeated by any of Wario's attacks, although avoiding to touch its spikes. Wario can also defeat Vase-Based by picking it up and throwing it at the vase (although unlike most other enemies, it will not defeat the vase simultaneously).
