In-game sprite.

Klinko is an uncommon enemy exclusive to Kirby's Dream Land 3. It resembles a round, purple blob wearing a brown, straw umbrella-like hat, which darkens its face. A pair of white, glowing eyes can be seen underneath.

Found mainly in the Iceberg stages, Klinkos jump around, repeatedly performing two small hops followed by a single, larger leap and turning around if they collide with an obstacle. After each of their large leaps, they turn to face Kirby (if they do not already) and proceed towards him, hurting him if they manage to bump into him. Klinkos can be defeated using any attack, or inhaled and swallowed for the Parasol ability.

Trivia

  • This enemy appears to be based on the Amefurikozō, a Japanese weather spirit that appears during rainfall and wears a hat fashioned from an umbrella, very similar to that worn by a Klinko.
  • Klinko is one of only two opponents in Kirby's Dream Land 3 to have an English name that notably differs from the reading of its Japanese name (in Klinko's case, by containing an "l" where no l/r sound is indicated by the kana); the other one is Wappa.
