Dethskullks suck the life force out of anyone they touch, so proceed with caution when you see one. This bizarre crew travels by pirate ship, where they try very, very hard not to bump into each other.
— Figurine description of Dethskullk from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Dethskullk is an enemy exclusive to Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. It floats around erratically, and upon spotting Kirby, slowly chases after him. Touching a Dethskullk will instantly K.O. Kirby or Waddle Dee, regardless of how much health they had at the time, so Dethskullks should generally be avoided. The only way to defeat one is through the use of an Invincible Candy, thereby scoring 100 points (but no Point Stars).

In Story Mode, Dethskullk appears exclusively in The Haunted Ship, though it does make a few more appearances in Challenge Mode.
