— 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. It takes two hits from Kirby Tank to defeat, and explodes once defeated, breaking any blocks and defeating any enemies caught in the blast.
