Parasol is an enemy in the Kirby series resembling a red and white parasol that can be swallowed for the Parasol ability. It is usually held by a Waddle Dee, Waddle Doo, or Shotzo, enabling them to slow their fall. Prior to reaching the ground, the former two can be swallowed, enabling the Parasol ability, rather than no ability or the Beam ability. These enemies most often let go of the Parasol once they land on the ground. After this, the Parasol will float up, hurting Kirby if he comes into contact with it. Sometimes they home in on Kirby.

Unlike other defeatable enemies in Kirby Squeak Squad, the Parasol cannot be possessed using the Ghost ability, and Ghost Kirby will simply pass through if he attempts to. If Kirby possesses a Waddle Dee or Waddle Doo who is holding a parasol, that enemy will immediately drop the parasol upon possession.

From Kirby's Return to Dream Land and onward, Parasols would no longer be considered enemies in their own right, though they can still harm Kirby if he bumps into one that is detached and flying away.
