As for the enemies, some of the more common enemies of the series appear on coastal-themed stages such as Koopa Troopas. However, throughout the series, more enemies can appear on land. One of the most well known ones are Bloopers that can also appear as underwater enemies. Another common enemy of coastal themed stages include beached Cheep-Cheeps and crabs.

Usually, the main hazards are the enemies themselves where they tend to be in places where the player may get hit by them at.
