— Guest Star Driblee Rinse and Repeat Pause Screen description in Kirby Star Allies
Driblee is a common enemy that debuted in Kirby Star Allies. It resembles a blue eel fish, but with fins for arms, a small frill on its head and a large, leafy tail. It provides the Water ability when swallowed by Kirby. Its name is possibly a play on "dribble" and the reverse spelling of "eel".
Driblee can also be made into a Friend, whereby it dons a water crown similar to Kirby's. As an ally, Driblee can use the full move-set of the Water ability, along with the Friend Abilities related to it. Like many allies, Driblee has lower health than Kirby, but benefits from an Infinity Jump.
Like other allies, Driblee gets a unique playthrough in the extra game called Guest Star Driblee Rinse and Repeat.
Driblee can be found in the following stages:
- In the Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! pause flavor text, Driblee is described as female in Japanese, French, Italian and Spanish; neutral (or not mentioned) in English, Dutch, Korean and Simplified Chinese; male in German and Traditional Chinese.
- According to its Chinese name, Driblee is an eel fish creature.
- If the enemy Driblee falls into the waters, it will survive but the water ball it shoots will vanish immediately. This is possibly because the waters are considered to be an obstacle to Driblee's projectiles.
