Virovirokun is an enemy first encountered in Cyber Field. They are based on computer viruses.
Virovirokun are based on computer viruses, and as such have a sickly appearance. They are composed of abstract triangles and arrows with a purple, magenta, and cyan color scheme. Before sparing conditions are met, they have spiral eyes which spin, sweat, a frustrated expression, and carry a spear. They also possess a purple tongue, only visible in their hurt animation. After cared for, they gain a far happier expression, and carry a peace sign. Both forms have rosy cheeks.
They have a criminal record, prefer to get things for free, and are mischievous. This makes sense, as they're computer viruses. Virovirokun does seem to have a nice side, though, as seen after being taken care of, or when helping teach Noelle how to battle. Although they have a rivalry with Ambyu-Lances due to their inherently opposing nature, they are amicable enough to drink together.
- Purple arrows fly from the side. They explode into a cloud of smoke when hitting the SOUL. If an arrow or its explosion smoke contacts another bullet of any kind (including another arrow), the bullet becomes "infected" and forms a small purple pixel icon resembling Virovirokun, which moves towards the SOUL.
- The only exception to this is Ambyu-Lance's cross-shaped bullets; if a cross comes close to an arrow, the cross moves directly towards the arrow and destroys it, then continues forward. Ambyu-Lance's ambulance and cactus-shaped bullets are susceptible to being infected, however.
- Two aliens shoot from above as they move down, like in Space Invaders.
- Several conditions allow Virovirokun to be spared:
- TakeCare increases mercy by 100% for one Virovirokun.
- TakeCareX increases mercy by 100% for all Virovirokun.
- S-Action, R-Action, and N-Action increase mercy by 50% for one Virovirokun.
- Sparing (when its name is not yellow) increases mercy by 20% for one Virovirokun.
- Using SoftVoice on Tasque while Virovirokun is also present increases mercy by 50% for all Virovirokun.
- Using PettingX on Tasque while Virovirokun is also present increases mercy by 100% for all Virovirokun.
- Using Roar on Tasque while Virovirokun is also present makes all Virovirokun tired.
- If aiming to spare enemies (such as Smorgasbord 2), doing TakeCareX first makes Virovirokun spareable and increases other enemy percentages by 50%.
- The extensive nature of the purple arrows (detailed above) may make dodging them harder.

- Virovirokun was the first enemy known to be in Chapter 2, as they were previously shown in an update on Chapter 2's development. Their name, however, wasn't shown.
- A single Virovirokun is always the first encounter after Noelle joins the party. This Virovirokun is unique in that it can be defeated by a single IceShock despite Noelle not being strong enough to do so at this point.
- A unique cutscene plays if "TakeCareX" is selected. Kris and Virovirokun explain how battles work to Noelle while the screen is black.
- Two of Virovirokun's quotes reference computer viruses:
- "Happy new year 1997!" is a reference to the Happy99 computer virus, which when executed, created a computer window display with the title "Happy New Year 1999 !!". The 1999 in the original quote has been changed to reference Spamton's favorite year, 1997.
- "I've got a love letter for you." appears to be a reference to the ILOVEYOU computer worm, a virus sent by email that propagated by hijacking computers and emailing copies of itself as a executable file disguised as a love letter text file.
