|“||We've all got a job to do, and Mega Grindarr's job is to drop down on you. It weighs 10 times more than typical Grindarr, so it makes quite an impact. But that's what it signed up for, so it just grins and bears it.||”|
— Figurine description of Mega Grindarr from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
Mega Grindarr is an enemy which debuted in Kirby Mass Attack. It is a much larger variant of Grindarr that sticks out its tongue as it falls. Mega Grindarr appears only once in each of the games in which it is found, and despite its similarity to standard Grindarrs, it doesn't actually end up posing much of a threat to Kirby, as it is not typically in a position to crush him. Instead, Mega Grindarr is either used as a stage prop, or Kirby rides on top of it.
Kirby Mass Attack
Mega Grindarr makes its debut appearance in Kirby Mass Attack in the tenth stage of Sandy Canyon. It appears at the beginning of the stage, partially buried in sand, and blocking the way forward. The Kirbys tug at a pull ring to pry Mega Grindarr out of the sand, but in doing so, the entire structure that the Kirbys were situated in starts to sink into the sand. The rest of the stage involves the Kirbys rushing to escape the sinking tower before they are swallowed up with it.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
Mega Grindarr returns in the Kirby and the Rainbow Curse stage Dig and Dash. Here, Kirby rides the Mega Grindarr as it slowly makes its way down the structure of the stage, clearing away obstacles in its path. Here, Kirby will need to be careful not to get crushed by Mega Grindarr as he clears the way for it to keep falling.
