Bigger Schnoz[derived from Japanese][1] is an even larger version of Schnoz from Kirby Mass Attack, appearing only at the end of Green Grounds - Stage 5. It looks similar to its smaller cousins, but it is green, and bears a ringed tail with retractable spikes. When the Kirbys encounter it, Bigger Schnoz will try to push the stage exit away from them. To defeat it, the Kirbys must grab onto its tail when it is not spiked, and pull as hard as they can. If they fail, Bigger Schnoz will shake them off, and cause spiked nuts to fall on their heads.

Defeating Bigger Schnoz is required to complete the level without using the shortcut, and confers 1,000 points onto the player.
