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. Pactos do not grant a Copy Ability when inhaled.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Pacto also appears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, where it is found only in stage 1 of Raisin Ruins 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. This game marked the first time that Pacto could be inhaled, though a Super Inhale is necessary to do the job.

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.
