This article is about the enemy Parasol object. For the Copy Ability, see Parasol.

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.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

Parasols first appear in Bubbly Clouds, being held by Waddle Dees, Waddle Doos and Shotzos. If detached from the object it holds, the parasol will float upward, and can harm Kirby on contact. In the Extra Game, parasols will home in on Kirby once detached.

Parasols are worth 20 points when defeated.

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

Parasols appear again in this game, as well as its remake. Here, they are often held by Waddle Dees, though may also be held by Waddle Doos. Here for the first time, swallowing them grants Kirby the Parasol ability.


Enemies holding parasols can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby Super Star/Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

Parasols return in these games, functioning much the same way they did in Kirby's Adventure. They can be held by Waddle Dees and Waddle Doos. A Parasol Waddle Dee serves as a helper.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

Parasol makes an appearance as a distinct enemy in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. Here, it can be seen being held by Waddle Dees, Waddle Doos, and Shotzos. In the case of Shotzos, they use Parasols to gently glide down from the air and, upon landing, let the Parasols go, at which point they quickly rise into the air and vanish unless they hit Kirby or are attacked.

Parasols can be found in every major area of the Mirror World except for Cabbage Cavern and Candy Constellation.

Other appearances[edit]

Main article: Parasol Waddle Doo

From Kirby: Squeak Squad and onward, Parasols would for the most part 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. 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.
