- This article is about Metal Guardian from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, and should not be confused with Covered Looker from Kirby: Planet Robobot.
Metal Guardian is an uncommon large enemy in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. It appears infrequently, and is essentially a large version of Laser Ball, very much how Heavy Knight is a large version of Sword Knight and how Giant Rocky is a large version of Rocky. Like all giant versions, it requires full power suction to defeat, and it has significantly more HP than normal enemies.
When first encountered, it is resting. When Kirby approaches it, it opens and start floating in circles. Then, it can attack Kirby by first charging, then shooting three laser beams or one powerful one. It provides the Laser ability when swallowed.
- In Kirby: Planet Robobot, a similar looking enemy called Covered Looker appears, but they are totally different enemies.
