Crap[Japanese title] is a robotic enemy in Kirby Mass Attack, appearing only in the Kirby Quest Sub-Game. It is built like a tiny green tank with two sets of small treads for movement, two circular eyes resembling spyglasses, and an open circular port for a mouth, similar in look to that of Hot Head or Flotzo. The top of its head is flat except for two tiny ear-like prongs.
Craps are fought in Stage 18 and Stage 34 of Kirby Quest, in groups of 4 and 5 respectively. Each one has 120 HP. If Kirby fails to attack, the Crap will run up to him and then collapse into a pile of rubble, revealing the bomb inside which will explode. This attack will immediately defeat the targeted Kirby regardless of his status, and will destroy the Crap itself.
Crap's name is not given in-game, even in the Japanese version. While its internal filename is "crap," its name was first officially revealed by Takayuki Nakayama, a designer for Kirby Mass Attack, on Twitter in 2021 (archive). This was reaffirmed in the Japanese Kirby Character Encyclopedia, released in 2022. "Crap" most likely comes from "scrap", referring to how the enemy is likely built out of scrap metal.
