This weirdo will give you quite a lift if you jump on its head just right!
— Patch Plaza description

Boinger is a cloudy spring-shaped enemy from Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. It can be found in Cloud Palace, where it floats on an arc-shaped trajectory in and out of the playing field along with numerous others of its kind. Boinger does not hurt Kirby; in fact, it helps him by giving him a way forward. When Kirby jumps on Boinger's head, he is propelled upward in a similar way to a trampoline. Using the Weight transformation allows Kirby to gain higher distance when bouncing from Boinger's head. Boinger likewise cannot be harmed, so it can be essentially seen as little more than a moving spring platform.


Boinger appears only in the Dream Land stage Cloud Palace.
