Pacto is a big yellow hovering enemy that debuted in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It vaguely resembles Pac-Man, but possesses a single big, round eye and red teeth. If it catches Kirby in its mouth, it chews him up and spits him out again, similarly to a Peloo or a Maw. Due to their inability to be inhaled, Pactos cannot grant a Copy Ability.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby: Canvas Curse[edit]

Pacto appears as an invulnerable hazard in Kirby: Canvas Curse, where it jumps out of pits constantly to eat anyone who closes in on it. Pacto attacks much faster in this game than it does in the main series.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Pacto also appears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, where it is found only in Raisin Ruins stage 1 and is identical in its attacks from its last appearance. However, there is a cloudy version of a Pacto found in Nutty Noon known as a Pacloud.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Pacto makes another appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, with identical functionality to the previous appearance. This time, however, its alternate variety is found in Wild World and is a flowery variant called a Pacflower. The regular version of Pacto only appears in stage 3 of Old Odyssey.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Pacto has since reappeared in Kirby: Planet Robobot, serving the same purpose as before, though this time with no alternate variant. It is an uncommon enemy, only appearing in Gigabyte Grounds stages 1 and 7 EX.
