The Cotta were the first creatures Claycia and Elline made for their new world. Claycia sculpted them out of clay, and Elline painted each one. These little critters aren't very good for fighting, but don't tell them that!
— Figurine description of Cotta from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Cotta is an enemy which made its first appearance in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Being the most basic enemy in the game, it wanders around aimlessly or stands still and can be easily defeated by Kirby's Touch Dash or Waddle Dee's spear. When defeated, Cotta confers 100 points and 3 Point Stars onto the player.

Cotta can be found in a variety of situations throughout Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. In addition to their usual waddling, they can be seen hanging from balloons (sometimes waving at Kirby while doing so) and are frequently found in areas out of reach. They are also often used as fodder to introduce certain stage hazards, with an example being the Cotta in The Long-Lost Ruins which gets flattened by a falling wall.

Its name is an abbreviation of "terracotta", a type of fired clay used for ceramics.


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