The Wiggler is an enemy character type from the Super Mario games. It looks similar to a caterpillar and can become enraged when Mario or his friends jump on it. 

It appeared the first time in The Forest of Illusion Stage in Super Mario World (1990) and returned later in many other Mario games like Super Mario 64 (1996) and Super Mario Odyssee (2017).  

In Super Mario Kart 7 (2011) for the Nintendo DS, Wiggler debuted as a playable character.
