KSqS Gussa Sprite.png Gussa[Japanese title] is an aquatic enemy from Kirby: Squeak Squad. It resembles a blue fish, or small shark with a propeller tail and a large horn sticking out the front of its head. When it spots Kirby in the water, it will attempt to ram him with its horn. It deals damage when striking Kirby, but will most likely also off itself in the process. If it runs into a wall, it will get stuck there for a while, unable to move.

Gussa makes its debut and only appearance as an enemy in Kirby: Squeak Squad. It is relatively rare, not encountered until very late into the game.

Gussa can be possessed by Ghost Kirby. While possessed, Gussa can be made to swim and to charge with its propeller tail, as well as hop around in the air and on land (though it can only charge underwater). Additionally, it can be made to get its horn stuck in a wall when charging. Despite this charge move, Gussa cannot attack enemies without also taking damage itself.

Gussa yields no Copy Ability if swallowed.


Gussa can be found in the following levels and stages:
