Kyuin[Japanese title] is an enemy from Kirby Mass Attack. It can be found in underwater stages, where it serves as a stage hazard. It cannot be attacked or defeated.

There are three types of Kyuin. Each has a different attack pattern:

  • The green Kyuin periodically sucks in water, creating a current toward its mouth. If a Kirby is caught at the Kyuin's base, he will be KO'd.
  • The red Kyuin blows out water, pushing Kirbys away from it. Otherwise it is harmless.
  • The purple Kyuin alternates between sucking in water, and blowing it out. It is only dangerous when sucking water in.


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