Flies & Hand
Flies & Hand (ハエと手, Flies & Hand) are entities from the Mario universe.
These entities originate from the Gnat Attack minigame in Mario Paint. This game, played with the SNES Mouse, involved players moving the hand holding a flyswatter in an attempt to swat flies of increasing size and number, culminating in the boss Watinga. Gnat Attack reappeared in the Wario game WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! under the name "Fly Swatter", and reappeared again in Super Mario Maker.
As an Assist Trophy
The Flies & Hand appear as an Assist Trophy. The flies will roam the stage while the hand holding the flyswatter will hover in the foreground and attempt to swat them, damaging any fighters who are hit in the process. The hand can be defeated if it takes enough damage. When KO'd, the hand displays eyes and a mouth just like in the original Mario Paint minigame when it gets hurt. It cannot appear in Garreg Mach Monastery, King of Fighters Stadium, Mushroomy Kingdom, and Norfair.
