Droppy is a common enemy in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. It is a round, yellow creature with two pointed tips for feet and another at the top of its head, giving it a drop-like shape. Its face consist solely of two large black eyes and a small red mouth.
The name Droppy comes from "drop" (referring to their drop-like appearance) and "copy" (due to their ability to steal Kirby's Copy Ability).
Droppy moves about in a swift and light manner, being able to run very fast and jump, as well as inflate itself and float around. If it manages to collide with Kirby, both he and the enemy lose health. In addition, if Kirby gets near it while in possession of a Copy Ability, it begins to inhale in a similar manner as Kirby himself, attempting to rob him of his ability, similarly to Tac. Once it has successfully stolen a Copy Ability, Droppy transforms into a pink and slightly quicker version of the enemy that most commonly yields the ability it absorbed, assuming its behavior and pushing Kirby away a bit in the process.
Although Droppy has low health and can be defeated with any attack, doing so in any other way than by swallowing it after it has pilfered Kirby's Copy Ability results in the permanent loss of said ability. Kirby can only regain it by inhaling and swallowing the Droppy that has taken it from him. If it has not absorbed any, Droppy grants no ability. Once killed, Droppy will not reappear until leaving the room and re-entering.
