This article is about the piranha-plant-like enemy from Kirby Mass Attack, and should not be confused with Gobblin.
Ravenous foes called Gobchomplins live in the cemetery. They'll gulp you down in one bite.

Gobchomplin is an enemy from Kirby Mass Attack. It looks and behaves similarly to a Piranha Plant from the Super Mario series, though its bulb is black, and it is typically found out in the open, rather than in pipes. Gobchomplin waits on floors or ceilings for Kirbys to approach, then will try to eat them by lunging forward. If it catches one, that Kirby will be munched on, then KO'd. Gobchomplin cannot be pummeled, and will bounce away any Kirbys who try to do so.


Gobchomplin can be found in the following levels and stages in Kirby Mass Attack:
