Jukid is a Mid-Boss in Kirby Super Star and its remake. It attacks by throwing punches, grabbing and throwing Kirby, Meta Knight, or a helper; and shooting beams at them, even though it gives Kirby the Suplex ability. Jukid is a (normally) pink blob in a martial artists' outfit. It has blonde hair, large feet, and disembodied hands.
