Wario Land 3

Enemies

Not just hindrances, as in most games, but sometimes unintentional helpers on your quest to grab treasure, whether it’s by giving you Status Effects or by being there to be thrown or to give a lift to your jumps.

Understanding this guide

Enemies have quite a few qualities that affect gameplay. Here I’ll describe the most common patterns:

Grabbability

@ 1 point in the game, you can pick up & throw some small enemies, & e’en later, you can pick up big enemies. This states whether you can pick up the enemy & whether it counts as a small or big enemy. Though, you can tell whether an enemy is big or small by whether it appears, well, big or small: Wario Land 3 doesn't stray from this pattern. But it’s much less obvious which enemies can’t be picked up @ all.

Respawn

While most enemies respawn ’pon changing rooms, some respawn simply by scrolling them off & back onscreen.

¿Sleeps @ night?

Some enemies sleep when it’s night; some don’t.

Spearhead
