Corori is a small penguin enemy that pushes large snowballs to attack Kirby with. It has purple body feathers, a white belly, a red beak, and no visible feet. On its head, it wears an orange snow hat with a white pom-pom. Corori first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 3, and would not appear again until Kirby and the Forgotten Land, some 25 years later.
Kirby's Dream Land 3
Corori only appears in one stage in Kirby's Dream Land 3; that being Stage 4 of Iceberg. Initially waiting in one place, it pushes a large snowball towards Kirby as soon as it spots him. Similarly to the boulders appearing in the same game, the snowball is invincible and keeps rolling until it hits a wall, harming Kirby if he touches it. After fulfilling its purpose, the Corori remains completely stationary and does not try to attack again, leaving it defenseless and vulnerable to any attack. Inhaling and swallowing it does not grant Kirby a Copy Ability.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land
After a 25 year-long absence, Corori returns in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, appearing in 3-D for the first time. It has the same basic look and attack plan, though with visible feet this time. It now gives the Ice ability when inhaled and swallowed.
In Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Corori appears in the following stages:
