K64 Blowfish Sprite.png Blowfish is a green, aquatic foe exclusively found in abundance on Aqua Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, swimming about the shallow waters. Unlike its real life counterpart, this fish will explode if Kirby comes too close, and in the situation that Kirby inhales and swallows this enemy before it has the chance to blow up, he will gain the Bomb ability.

In Stage 4 of Aqua Star, a large Blowfish appears as a Mid-Boss. Unlike smaller Blowfish, this enemy does not explode, and instead simply swims around in a circle, hurting Kirby on contact. It can be defeated after repeated attacks.


Blowfish can be found in the following levels and stages:

Stage 1 No No No No No No No
Stage 2 No No No No No No N/A
Stage 3 No No Yes No No No N/A

Blowfish also makes an appearance during the boss fight against Acro.



  • When preparing to explode, Blowfish reveals red-colored spikes on its body. This references how its real-world counterpart is covered in spikes that only extend when it puffs up.
