||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 stays in one place, and upon spotting Kirby, tracks his position, periodically firing cannonballs that move in straight lines. They can be easily defeated by Kirby's dash attack or Bandana Waddle Dee's spear, and the cannonballs themselves can be destroyed when they hit a rainbow rope.
