This article is about the Gordo-like enemy which debuted in Kirby: Canvas Curse, and should not be confused with Blade.
Quote1.png Blado certainly looks like he's doing his job, but it's becoming more and more obvious his heart is no longer in it. Part of him wants a co-worker to say something about it; the other part of him dreads that conversation. Quote2.png
— Figurine description of Blado from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse


Blado is an invincible enemy which appears in both Kirby: Canvas Curse and its spiritual successor - Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. He is similar to Gordo in both shape and function, and will harm Kirby if he comes into contact with him.

Blado is a round creature with two eyes, much like Gordo, though he usually bears a more menacing expression than his older counterpart. Instead of simple spikes on his exterior, however, he has four curved blades which resemble axe heads. These spin around Blado as he moves, making him look even more threatening. Despite the different appearance though, Blado is not any more dangerous to touch than Gordo. His only real functional difference is that he moves in a circular pattern, connected to a chain.
