From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
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 it's 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. It's movement is generally more chaotic than Squishy. Like Squishy, it can be inhaled, but yields no Copy Ability if swallowed.
Kirby's Dream Land
Flotzo makes its debut appearance in Kirby's Dream Land. Here, it can be found in the Extra Game, where it takes the place of Squishy. 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 it's corresponding portion of Mt. Dedede.
Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble
Flotzo makes an appearance in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, popping out of water to shoot pellets at Kirby, which can knock him into the water when they connect. Flotzo can be defeated using the Microphone or by using invincibility.
In Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, Flotzo appears only in Lvl 3-1.
Kirby Super Star Ultra
Flotzo returns in full color in the Kirby Super Star Ultra-exclusive game Revenge of the King, appearing in the second level; Illusion Islands. It's behavior is changed from its previous 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 cut-scene 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
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.
