Bloon is an enemy which made its debut (and only appearance) in Kirby: Canvas Curse. It provides the Balloon ability when collided with. Bloon is an acorn-shaped being with two round hands, a pointed head, and two small black dots for eyes. It floats in place with its mouth closed, presumably to keep in air. It doesn't pose much of a threat to Kirby, who will absorb its power should he defeat it.
Bloon floats in place, and does not move much. Like other enemies, it needs to be stunned using a tap from the Nintendo DS stylus to be defeated by contact, else it will damage Kirby instead.
In Kirby: Canvas Curse, Bloon appears in the following locations:
