Green Swinging Enemigo is a type of Enemigo that wields a swinging weapon. Its difference from a White Swinging Enemigo is that while a White Swinging Enemigo carries a weapon that swings horizontally (e. g. Machete, Macana etc.), this one carries a weapon that swings vertically (e. g. Cactus, 2 x 4 etc.). Its difference from a Brown Swinging Enemigo is that while a Brown Swinging Enemigo carries a weapon with both hands separated, this one carries a weapon with both hands together.
Being the weakest type of Enemigo after Scarecrow, it takes 10 punches to kill him in Cactus McCoy and The Curse of Thorns at a Punching Level of 1. In the second game, however, the number of punches required to kill him increases to 10 punches in Areas 1 to 5 and 15 punches in Areas 5 to 12 at again a Punching Level of 1.
- As their unofficial name implies, a Green Swinging Enemigo is completely clothed with green clothes and he wears a green angler's hat.
