Artwork of a Yadorā from the Japanese guide of Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3
|First appearance||Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (1994)|
A Yadorā is a small hermit crab enemy in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. Yadorā walk back and forth, stopping at platforms' edges. When they reach an edge, they withdraw into their shells and turn around. The crabs are virtually invincible when they withdraw into their shells. The Yadorā can be defeated only by a side tackle to their weak spot, their back. The only other way is with Dragon Wario's breath. If Wario comes in contact with any other part of their body, he shrinks to Small Wario.
The Yadorā are also immune to water; they can walk around in it without taking damage. Wario can simply touch their backs to knock them out when they are underwater.

Hermit crab soldier with scissors
They are wrapped in hard shells, and they are moving their scissors around as they move. Since they cannot be stepped on, they can be defeated by hitting them when they turn around or by throwing 10-Coins or other objects at them.
