|I've heard that those cloudy Flickerfloofs have been spotted in the dry desert. They sprinkle rain wherever they go, which can help you grow plants. They also strike with lightning. Be careful if you plan to use one as a watering can.|
— Daroach describing Flickerfloof in Kirby Mass Attack
Flickerfloof is a tumultuous small cloud-like enemy in Kirby Mass Attack. It is similar in most every respect to the harmless Floof, but it is dark grey in hue and storms constantly underneath itself, creating an endless but very localized rainstorm. Occasionally, it will attempt to shoot lightning, which can harm any Kirby caught beneath.
In Sandy Canyon - Stage 2, Flickerfloof's rain is necessary to grow certain plants, which can then be used to bust through metal block barricades to obtain some Medals stashed therein. If the Kirbys defeat Flickerfloof, another will appear immediately in its place. Defeating Flickerfloof confers 500 points onto the player.
Flickerfloof appears solely in Sandy Canyon - Stage 2.
- Flickerfloof is the only enemy of the "Floof" family that was given a proper localized English name. As such, the other Floof names were inferred from this one.
