Flotzo is an octopus-like creature which debuted as an enemy in Kirby's Dream Land and that also appears in the Kirby Super Star Ultra exclusive game - Revenge of the King.

Flotzo sports a deep maroon color, and uses its tentacles to move about on land and in water. Flotzo can be found in many different instances, walking around on the ground, and flying through the air in many different patterns. Its movement is generally more chaotic than Squishy. Like Squishy, it can be inhaled, but yields no Copy Ability if swallowed.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

Flotzo serves largely the same role as Squishy, but is somewhat faster in terms of movement, and deals two points of damage to Kirby on contact. It is worth 400 points when defeated by another attack.

Flotzo can be found in Float Islands and its corresponding portion of Mt. Dedede.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble[edit]

Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

KSSU Flotzo Sprite.png Flotzo returns in full color in the Kirby Super Star Ultra-exclusive game Revenge of the King, appearing in the second level; Illusion Islands. Its behavior is changed from its original appearance to match Squishy's equivalent behavior in this game, though Flotzo deals more damage on touch and has much higher endurance.

Flotzo also appears in the intro cutscene for Illusion Islands, where it latches itself onto Kirby's face when he tries to reel it in using a fishing rod.

Kirby Mass Attack[edit]

Flotzo appears in the Kirby Mass Attack Sub-Game Kirby Quest as one of Kirby's opponents. It appears alongside Sweet Stuff and Squishy in stages 23 and 33. It has 90 HP.
