- This article is about the Gordo-like enemy which debuted in Kirby: Canvas Curse, and should not be confused with Blade.
|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.|
— 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. It is similar to Gordo in both shape and function, and will harm Kirby if he comes into contact with it.
Blado is a round creature with two eyes, much like Gordo, though it usually bears a more menacing expression than its older counterpart. Instead of simple spikes on its exterior, however, it has four curved blades which resemble axe heads. These spin around Blado as it moves, making it look even more threatening. Despite the different appearance though, Blado isn't any more dangerous to touch than Gordo. Its only real functional difference is that it moves in a circular pattern, connected to a chain.
In Kirby Star Allies, Yggy Woods and Parallel Woods drop Blados from their canopies. Dropped Blados fall quickly to the ground, then spin along the ground when leaving the area. This marks their first appearance in a main series title.
- The spinning blade hazard from the stage Nature's Navel in Kirby Star Allies is called メガブレドー (Mega Blado) in Japanese.
