1. A common enemy type in the Mario series of videogames.
2. A minion of the villain Bowser.
Minor henchmen, known as the lowest of enemies. They are easily dispatched of with any form of attack. They lack intelligence, and will often walk off of cliffs. Their only form of offense is to run into the opponent, and they have no concept of what defense is. When defeated, they will either give points, coins, or other similer objects. As coins can heal Mario, they often amount to little more than walking containers.
They come in multiple forms, though each form improves very little. Some have wings, and are upgraded to the status of floating jump-off point, while others come in an even weaker variety that are dispatched of even more easily. Often voted as the most pathetic minion in history, any victories obtained by them are attributed either to extreme luck, or a pathetic and disgraceful opponent.
