First appearance Wario Land 3 (2000)
Variant of Cook

Doughnuteers[1] are enemies featured in Wario Land 3. Their name is a portmanteau of "doughnut" and the suffix "-eer", which refers to an entity that produces or is heavily associated with something. They appear as small creatures and are one of two types of enemies in the game that induce the Fat Wario reaction, the other being Appleby. While their appearance is different, they act virtually the same as the Cooks from Wario Land II; however, rather than a cake, they carry doughnuts on their forks, throw at a slightly higher arc, and do not pause as long before and after throwing. If Wario comes close to a Doughnuteer, it will toss its doughnut and run away, only to fetch the next doughnut. Apart from that, they are easy to defeat with any of Wario's attacks. If Wario touches and subsequently eats a doughnut, he will become Fat Wario, which has the effect of a powered-up Smash Attack if he drops, and allows him to break doughnut blocks if he drops on them.

Doughnuteers appears in the following levels, in the following quantities:

In the ending of the game, when the hidden figure's curse is lifted, a Doughnuteer enemy reverts to its true form of a farmer.
