Laser Ball is an enemy making its debut in Kirby's Adventure, appearing in most other games in the series. As its name suggests, Laser Ball is the most common enemy to give out the Laser ability, but in Kirby Super Star and its remake, it yields the Beam ability instead. Laser Ball attacks Kirby by floating in his direction, and proceeds to shoot lasers at him. Unlike most enemies, Laser Ball can fly through walls, often retreating at great speed after it fires its rounds at Kirby.

Appearance and behavior

Laser Ball has a relatively simple appearance, being a gleaming and primarily orange circle with eyes. Despite its unassuming appearance, Laser Ball is quite mobile, and is one of the few enemies able to move through walls. Despite this, it can also occasionally be found stuck inside a walled enclosure, waiting for Kirby to come gobble it up.

Laser Ball is one of the more difficult enemies that Kirby will face on his adventures, particularly if in large numbers. Its habit of flying in and firing lasers straight at Kirby means that it will always get in his way, so Kirby could just as easily take damage by running into it as he would actually getting hit by its lasers. Laser Ball is capable of firing up to four laser volleys in rapid succession, though unlike the Laser ability proper, these do not bounce off of slopes, even when Ghost Kirby possesses it. Possessed Laser Balls are also not able to go through walls.
