KatAMFoley.png Foley is an enemy which first appeared in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. It is a small, yellow creature with two leaves on its head, which act as a propeller. Foley is a common enemy that usually hovers above Kirby and falls down when he is below it, similar to a Coconut. Foley yields the Bomb Copy Ability when inhaled and swallowed by Kirby.

Foley can essentially be seen as a living flying bomb, holding in place or moving in a fixed pattern through the air on its propeller. When Kirby passes underneath, Foley will separate from its propeller and drop after a brief pause. If Foley hits Kirby or the floor, it will detonate, defeating itself and dealing damage in a small area. However, Foley will not detonate if it is defeated by any attack (including landing on Kirby's Parasol), unlike Coconuts which detonate regardless. Naturally, if Foley falls into a bottomless pit or into a body of water, it will be unable to detonate, and will be defeated or disappear respectively.

The name 'Foley' may be a reference to the film-making term for creating sound effects for a production, which often includes explosion sounds.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

Foley made its first appearance in this game. It is one of the few enemies which can be found in every major area of the Mirror World to a greater or lesser extent. Foley usually holds position in the air until Kirby passes underneath, but it can also be seen moving from side-to-side, and performing other movements in rarer cases. Much like Scarfies in the older titles, if Foley is defeated by any attack that isn't inhaling and swallowing it, it will leave behind a damaging explosion upon losing all of its health.

In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Foley can be found in the following rooms:

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

Foley appears again in Kirby: Squeak Squad, relatively unchanged from its previous appearance. Here, it can also be found in every major area, though it is more common in places such as Cushy Cloud and Jam Jungle.

When possessed by Ghost Kirby, Foley can be made to fly around and drop to detonate. This makes Foley the only possessable enemy whose attack automatically causes it to be defeated.
