History[edit]

Super Mario 3D World[edit]

Walleye SM3DW Model.png

Walleyes first appear in Super Mario 3D World as rare enemies. They move from side to side in an attempt to keep the player from walking past them. Contact with their spikes causes damage, but their fronts and backs are safe to touch. Walleyes can be temporarily dazed by a projectile or a claw attack and can be destroyed by Lucky Cat Mario. They only appear in Ty-Foo Flurries, The Great Goal Pole, and Mystery House Marathon.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker[edit]

Walleyes return as somewhat uncommon enemies in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, serving the same purpose as in Super Mario 3D World. The only way to defeat them is by using an Invincibility Mushroom, and they provide the player 3 coins upon defeat.

Super Mario Party[edit]

Walleyes appear in Super Mario Party as non-playable characters. They can appear in Follow the Money as obstacles, where they run back and forth constantly, and they can also be seen in Absent Minded.
