KSqS Maiga Sprite.png Maiga is an enemy from Kirby: Squeak Squad. It is a green-ish blob-like creature that hops around in erratic patterns. If Kirby attempts to Inhale it, the Maiga will stick to his face, and bounce back off, dealing damage in the process. As such, it cannot be swallowed, and instead must be dispatched by other means.

Despite being a blob with no fixed shape, Maiga does tend to form two horn-like protuberances on the top of their heads when they are not moving.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

Maiga makes its debut and only appearance as an enemy in this game. It can be found either on its own or in large numbers, and is not the most difficult enemy in the world to defeat. However, if Kirby makes the mistake of trying to inhale it, he will take a large amount of damage as the Maiga clings to his face.

When possessed by Ghost Kirby, Maiga can be made to perform small and large hops to get around, though it is incapable of attacking anything without in turn getting hurt.


Many Maigas appearing in a trap in Jam Jungle - Stage 2.

Maiga is a fairly common enemy in this game, though it cannot be found everywhere. It is most commonly encountered in Cushy Cloud and Gamble Galaxy.
