Shuriken Bros. are enemies first appearing in New Super Mario Bros. Omega. They are similar to their relatives, Hammer Bros., except they are colored pink and, as the name implies, throw shurikens. The shurikens fly horizontally through the air for a split second, before falling through the ground. Yoshi can use the shurikens, and spit them back out at enemies to get a Coin. Their obese counterpart are Ninja Bros., who throw large shurikens that fall slowly to the ground. They also appear in Super Mario HD/3D, but they only appear in a cutscene as Bowser's guards, which Mario defeats. There is also a counterpart called a Red Shuriken Bro., who acts the same as the Shuriken Bro., except his gear is red.
