This Cotta comes with a drill, which he uses to, you know, drill. He tried to drill for treasure once, but that clay was just too hard and broke his drill. Unfortunately, it did even more than that--it broke his heart.
— Figurine description of Drill Cotta from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Drill Cotta is an enemy which exclusively appears in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. He stays in one place, and upon spotting Kirby, charges in the direction his drill is facing, digging through soft clay or sand as he does so, then gets permanently stuck once he hits a solid obstacle. He can be easily defeated by Kirby's Touch Dash or Waddle Dee's spear when struck in the head, though attempting to attack the drill bit will only result in the attacker taking damage. There are two different sizes of Drill Cotta; the smaller one is defeated in one hit and awards 100 points and 3 Point Stars, while the bigger one takes two hits to defeat and awards 500 points and 10 Point Stars.

Drill Cotta appears exclusively in the stage Dig and Dash.
