Joe is a small turquoise shark-like foe who can be sparsely found in pools of water around Popstar, patrolling the waters by itself. Aside from the color and diminutive stature, Joe resembles a great white shark in look and behavior. If Kirby or another playable character gets too near, Joe will bite down on them, dealing damage without being damaged in return, unlike most other enemies. Joe can be inhaled, but will grant no Copy Ability when swallowed.

Kirby's Dream Land 3

DL3 Joe Sprite.png Joe makes its first any only video game appearance in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It can be found very rarely in pools of water, and swims back and forth. It makes little attempt to actively pursue Kirby or his friends, so they should have little problem avoiding Joe in most situations.


In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Joe can be found in the following levels and stages:
