Kookler is an enemy debuting in the original Kirby's Dream Land. It is a dark blue, floating head shaped like a rectangle with rounded corners, which is adorned by two small, yellow, pointy horns growing on top of it. Its face consists of two big, round eyes that are completely black apart from a tiny white spot inside each, as well as a laughing mouth with a pair of pointed, yellow fangs.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Dream Land

In-game sprite.

Kooklers first appear in Kirby's Dream Land, where they are encountered only in Bubbly Clouds and the section of Mt. Dedede devoted to the aforementioned stage. Each individual specimen may possess one of two different movement patterns: it may either fly in a large, oval shape or follow a triangular path. While in motion, all Kooklers continuously change their shape, alternating between flattening themselves vertically and horizontally, depending on the direction they are moving in.

Kooklers are vulnerable to any attacks and harm Kirby on touch. Due to the absence of Copy Abilities in the only game they appear in, no ability can be acquired by inhaling and swallowing them. In the Extra Game, they are replaced by Whiskers.

Trivia

  • The enemy's appearance may in part be inspired by an oni, an ogre from Japanese folklore often depicted with a pair of yellow horns on its head.
