— Triple Deluxe Boss description. This reveals how it can be damaged.
Coily Rattler is a boss from Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It resembles a large rattlesnake, but is made entirely of rounded metal segments, and can be considered thus a robot or snake puppet. He attacks by using his body in various ways, including snaking around the stage, striking with his rattle, and biting, following up by carrying his victim across the stage. Coily Rattler can also split into several pieces and attack by raining himself down onto the stage. Coily Rattler is the boss of Triple Deluxe's fourth Level, Wild World, and it is also battled in The Arena and Stage 2 of Royal Road.
The battle initiates when Kirby enters the temple in Wild World. After he makes his way through the boss door, he sees Taranza in front of a statue where Coily Rattler is depicted. Taranza then uses his magic to animate the statue, and Coily Rattler is brought back to life. He and Kirby then face off.
The following lists all of Coily Rattler's attacks in Story Mode and The Arena in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Attacks in italics are used in the second phase of the fight only.
|Attacks - Normal|
As pointed out in the pause quote, the only part of Coily Rattler that can be damaged is the head. This is not usually an issue, as many of Coily's attacks leave his head exposed, and often attacks that don't appear to hit the head still will.

Upon defeat, Coily Rattler attempts to flee to the background, but then reverts to statue form and crumbles piece-by-piece, his head flying back onto the stage before shattering and revealing the Grand Sun Stone for Kirby to collect.
