Wario Land: Shake It! enemy
Threat RedStar.svgRedStar.svgRedStar.svg

Turkeyjerks are avian enemies from Wario Land: Shake It!. There are two varieties: brown and green. The green variety hover in one place and swoop at Wario if he draws near. The brown Turkeyjerks have the same attack pattern, but they fly back and forth. Either variety may carry rocks that they drop when Wario attempts to go past them. Turkeyjerks are useful for solving puzzles, as if the player shakes them, they lose all their feathers and run forwards. They destroy any stone blocks in their way, allowing Wario to access tunnels that may have been blocked. Turkeyjerks first appear in Disturbing Tomb.
