This little creature is more delicate than it looks--it'll explode the second you touch it. It's not an easy life, but that's what it was born to do.
— Figurine description of Explortle from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Explortle is an enemy which made its first appearance in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. It emerges from a random spot in midair once Kirby Tank gets close enough, continuously staying in one place or drifting in one direction. It takes one hit from Kirby Tank to defeat, and explodes once defeated, breaking any blocks and defeating any enemies caught in the blast. Defeating Explortle also awards 100 points and 3 Point Stars.

In Story Mode, Explortle appears exclusively in the stage Woodland Battle, though it can also be found in a few stages in Challenge Mode.
