The Sneaky Spirits (しろいおばけ Shiroi Obake?) are characters in the minigame of the same name, Sneaky Spirits.

Physical Appearances

The spirits are all-white in color. They have large teeth and exceptionally long tongues. Besides their round shape and short white tails, these are their only defining features.


The Sneaky Spirits are well-known for causing mischief, sneaking from wall to wall while trying to escape their haunted house. They are described as being "kinda mean" and "jerks", but they "aren't evil, exactly". According to the Rhythm Items, the arrow used to shoot them is magical, as it has the ability to pierce a ghost. The archer, however, has to keep retrieving it, seeing as they only have one. The bow itself has been in the archer's family for generations. It's made out of wood from a sacred tree and a left-handed dragon's whisker. The tree was also shaped like a two-headed horse.



  • The sounds the Sneaky Spirits make when moving along the wall is a slowed down version of the sounds the Penguins make in Showtime.
  • The Sneaky Spirits appear as enemies in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS in Smash Run mode. They behave the same way that they do in their original games, and they yield power-ups that enhance all the player's stats when defeated.
  • The Sneaky Spirits made a cameo during Ashley’s Halloween preview for WarioWare Gold.
