— Vs. C.O.G.S. Special Page
True to its name, C.O.G.S. is little more than a series of cogs and gears on the side of a wall. Attached to these cogs are a series of turrets that will attempt to fire missiles, plasma shots and laser blasts at Kirby. To defeat C.O.G.S., Kirby must simply fire at the individual gears until they are destroyed, rendering C.O.G.S. inoperable piece-by-piece.
Kirby: Planet Robobot
C.O.G.S. first appears at the end of Stage 2 of Resolution Road, as the last obstacle that Kirby must overcome using the Jet Mode. Fighting and defeating it is simply a matter of destroying every gear on the boss with sustained fire. Firing at gears that are already destroyed will not damage it further.
- The name C.O.G.S. in addition to being an accurate descriptor for the boss, may also be a pun on the financial accounting acronym, standing for "Cost Of Goods Sold". This would be in keeping with it being built by the Haltmann Works Company.
