From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Lollipop Tank is an enemy which appears in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It is a large rolling vehicle which is piloted by a Waddle Dee - usually found in the background - which continually fires volleys at Kirby or King Dedede in the foreground while it can keep up. It cannot be harmed directly, but it can be destroyed by dropping it into the bottomless pit. It can also be inhaled using Hypernova. The Lollipop Tank is capable of breaking stone and metal blocks by driving over them or by firing at them. Lollipop Tanks make their first appearance when Kirby traverses the first stage of Lollipop Land.
There is a Sectonian variety found in Royal Road (referred to as Sectra Tank) piloted by two Sectra Dees which fires spiked cannonballs. The Sectra Tank is capable of firing several rounds in rapid succession. Due to their location in the background, Sectra Tanks cannot be destroyed normally, but Kirby can send them falling to their doom in a bottomless pit. In the third stage, Kirby can use the Hypernova ability to swallow one, revealing the goal door.

- ↑ "They’re so popular with the team we ended up putting them in similar roles in other parts of the game too - for example, manning the Lollipop Tank or building the giant bonfire that you extinguish using the water bowl."
