Horned frogs are enemies which live under the Awazon river basin in Virtual Boy Wario Land. They first appear in Stage 1, and resemble pudgy bipedal frogs. They also display two horns on their heads, which they use for attacking. They are found skipping along a path, and change direction when they encounter a ledge.

After they spot Wario, horned frogs attempt to attack him by charging themselves and ramming their horns into Wario. However, their horns are blunt and do not damage him. Horned frogs are vulnerable to any of Wario's attack moves, including barging or body slamming. Wario is also able to simply stomp on horned frogs to stun them, then pick up and toss them into other enemies to defeat them. As such, horned frogs count as completely inoffensive enemies, a characteristic which is also found in Wanderin' Gooms from Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3.
