Wigglers are uncommon enemies which appear in almost every Newer Super Mario Bros. game.


Wigglers have yellow caterpillar-like bodies composed of four spheres with orange-brown dots on them, each sphere having two orange legs wearing purple shoes. In front of these spheres is their yellow head, sporting a bulbous brown nose, a happy smile, chubby cheeks, and a white flower stemming from their head.

When angry, the Wiggler's body turns red, their eyes become completely whited out, their smile turning into an angry frown, and the flower wilting from their head. Steam will exit their head as they vent.


Wigglers will slowly walk left and right, turning at ledges. When jumped on, they will enter their angry state, stopping for a second before walking faster left and right, this time following the player on the ground. It will still turn at ledges, however. The only way for a Wiggler to be put out of its angry state would be to reload it by either exiting and reentering an area or coming back to it after it has disappeared off-screen.

Wigglers are immune to Fire Flowers' fireballs, and are defeated by Hammer Suits' hammers, Super Stars, Mega Mushrooms, and sliding down slopes.
