From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Gaspar is an obscure flying ghost-like enemy who made its first appearance in Kirby's Dream Land. It operates very similarly to Booler and resembles other ghost enemies such as Stogue, though Gaspar has only appeared in two games, and has not made any significant cameos in the Kirby media since.
Gaspar resembles a circular ghost - much like Booler - though it also possesses a night cap, depicted as red in its official artwork. Instead of sticking its tongue out, Gaspar takes a more reserved posture, and possesses large cheek blush similar to Kirby in his later appearances. It also somewhat resembles Noddy in appearance, mainly due to its soft face and cap.
Gaspar can be seen flying about Castle Lololo in various patterns, and may also home in on Kirby. It flies in slightly different patterns in some areas, but apart from that, is identical in behavior to Booler.
Kirby's Dream Land
Gaspar makes its first appearance in Kirby's Dream Land, where it replaces Booler in the Castle Lololo stage when Extra Game is being played. Gaspar behaves in a practically identical manner, but deals twice as much damage to Kirby when colliding with him. Gaspar is worth 400 points when defeated.
