Spook (enemy)

First appearance Wario's Woods (1994)

Spooks[1] are jar-like mushrooms in Wario's Woods. They are less common than Spuds, Fuzzes and Squeaks. Unlike other enemies in the game, they have very limited color variation in the NES version, only appearing in red and blue variants. However, they have slightly more variety in the SNES version. They take two bombs to defeat, and Toad must act quickly to throw the double bombs at them, as they only stay vulnerable after the first bomb for a limited time.
