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.

Battle[edit]

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
Attack Description
Rock Spit
Coily Rattler uses this move most often. He fires three burning rocks from his mouth aimed at Kirby. These can be swallowed for the Fire Ability. Coily may also do this move from the background after slithering off the stage. In the second phase, Coily will first dive under the stage, then stick his head up to spit the rocks, finishing by occupying the area where he stopped. He may also fire several rocks while in the background.
Slither
Coily Rattler snakes his way across the stage, covering much of the ground.
Flying Slam
Coily Rattler flies into the air, then crashes down at Kirby's last position, creating stars when it lands. In the second phase, it may perform multiple slams.
Rattle Bash
Coily Rattler approaches Kirby, shaking his tail as he does so. Then, Coily Rattler swipes his tail several times, leaving stars every time it hits the ground.
Rollout
Coily Rattler curls up into a tight ball and rolls across the stage. On the underside, it then turns around and rolls back onto the stage, leaving small stars in a continuous trail.
Coiled Slither
Coily Rattler moves across the stage by wrapping around it, making him more difficult to hit in the process.
Scatter Storm
After slithering off stage, Coily Rattler appears in the background, then flies apart into several segments, which then come raining down onto the stage. His head comes down last, leaving stars when it impacts the ground.
Burning Hoop
Coily Rattler starts spinning wildly in a loop on the stage, burning as it does so. It then moves toward Kirby in an attempt to hit him.
Bite Tackle
Coily Rattler appears at the top of the screen after leaving the stage, only his head poking out. After a short time, it dashes at Kirby in an attempt to grab him in his mouth. It leaves stars on impact if it doesn't hit, and tries again. If successful, it drags Kirby across the background, dealing continuous damage as it does so, finishing off by violently spitting him out onto the stage. This is his strongest move.
Kirby hovers above the coiling beast using his Spear.

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.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Coily Rattler appears in hologram form in this title, conjured by the Holo Defense API. It fights in a largely similar manner, but it can leave conflagrations of sparks when it moves and splits apart.

Trivia[edit]

  • Coily Rattler is similar in his name construction to Fatty Puffer. Each individual word's final syllable ends in the same letter.
  • Holo-Coily Rattler's pause screen description reveals that the People of the Sky revered Coily Rattler as a god. They may have built a temple to him and may even worship other snakes.
  • Coily Rattler is the only boss to start out on the left. However, his introduction cutscene shows him on the right. Then, after it is animated, his statue falls off and comes back on the left.
  • Coily Rattler's name is ironic, as his tail does not have a rattle. However, his body DOES make a rattling noise during many of his attacks.
