Zombies[1] are enemies in Wario Land II and Wario Land 3. They are tall, humanoid beings of off-white or green color and mainly appear in dark areas, such as caves, dark rooms, or in cities when it is night. The head of the zombie can be separated from the body and serves as its main weapon. Normal zombies can pass sources of light without problems, while Zombie Wario gets turned back to his original form when exposed to it.


Wario Land II[edit]

In Wario Land II, zombies are seen as white or gray motionless heads that lie on the ground in dark areas. When Wario approaches them, they rise from the ground and throw their heads at Wario three times. If the heads hit Wario, he is turned into Zombie Wario. Wario can make zombies disappear by touching their body when they are separated from the heads, but zombies quickly respawn after that. The only way to defeat them permanently is to attack them while in zombie form.

Wario Land 3[edit]

Zombies return in Wario Land 3, where they once again turn Wario into Zombie Wario. They are green in this game and cannot be seen as skulls before they rise. They are also notably quicker than before and less predictable. To attack, they throw their heads at Wario that travels forward that turn backwards after a set distance, and then disappear to respawn once again after some time passes. They are impervious to most normal attacks and cannot be grabbed, and can only be defeated by Zombie Wario, Hot Wario, or by throwing an enemy at them.

They appear in the following levels in the mentioned quantities:
