Nolly[Japanese title] is an enemy in Kirby Mass Attack. It is a purple penguin-like creature which is typically seen balancing atop a ball of some kind. When the Kirbys approach, Nolly will try to throw spiked balls at them while rolling forward. It takes some time for Nolly to pull out a ball, however, so it is vulnerable to attack by the Kirbys. After being defeated, 300 points will be awarded to the player, and it may be possible for the Kirbys to interact with the ball the Nolly was balancing on.

Nolly is never directly mentioned by Daroach in the English version of the game, nor is it ever named outside of the Japanese release.


Nolly only appears in Dedede Resort - Stage 10. One of the metal balls that a Nolly balances on is needed to access a medal in the stage.
