Blipper is a common and iconic enemy in the Kirby series. They usually reside in water. When they are not in water, they flop around on land. They do not have any Copy Abilities. They will often jump from the water and attack. Another trait is that they will zero in on Kirby's entry point to the water, thus causing damage as soon as he enters.

Blippers are simple to defeat. Kirby can use any attack to defeat a Blipper while on dry land. While underwater Kirby's attack is limited to spraying them with the Water Gun, unless he has an ability suited for use underwater, like Sword or Spear.


Blipper's upper body is orange, and its lower body is yellow, and it sports three white fins on its side, and its back. It has small black eyes behind the goggles. It wears traditional scuba goggles, regardless of its fish-like anatomy.

A different species of another aquatic enemy, Mamanti, resembles a bigger Blipper.
