|“||Balloon-Meister loves to do tricks! No one knows where it learned 'em. Perhaps it's hereditary? Whatever it is, the tricks are fun! Just don't let the ball touch you. Try to inhale it instead to get the Bomb ability. (Hey, wait! Where did it get that ball?!)||”|
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Balloon-Meister is a large seal-like enemy who is part of the Beast Pack and wears a green bucket atop its head, and first appeared in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Balloon Meister can be found sitting in place, either on land or in the water. It attacks by conjuring and throwing large beach balls (which are actually explosive) at Kirby when he is in range. Balloon-Meister can take a bit of a beating, but is regardless vulnerable to most forms of attack, and yields a green Star Coin on defeat. With some difficulty, Kirby can inhale it for the Bomb ability. Alternatively, the beach balls can be inhaled for the ability as well.
Balloon-Meister can be found in the following stages:
