This is what happens when you're a Cotta and you mouth off to Claycia. She turns you into a cannon! Some folks think that's pretty mean of her. But that certainly is a fine-looking cannon, don't you think?
— Figurine description of Cannon Cotta from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Cannon Cotta is an enemy which made its first appearance in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. It is a Cotta which has been reshaped into a cannon, similar to Shotzo. It stays in one place, and upon spotting Kirby, tracks his position, periodically firing cannonballs that move in straight lines. It can be easily defeated by Kirby's Touch Dash or Waddle Dee's spear, and the cannonballs themselves can be blocked when they hit a rainbow rope. Defeating a Cannon Cotta rewards 100 points and 3 Point Stars.

During The Final Battle, Claycia can conjure Cannon Cottas from the ceiling which will fire bubbled bombs (and occasionally Point Stars) at Kirby instead of the usual cannonballs. These Cannon Cottas are a darker hue than the normal ones, and disappear after a short while.


In Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Cannon Cotta appears in the following locations:
