Phanta is a ghostly flying enemy that debuted in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It resembles a white sheet ghost with a red skull-shaped mask, bearing a permanent sorrowful expression with glowing yellow eyes. It typically attacks by appearing out of nowhere and then drifting towards Kirby, similar to Mumbies, though Phanta will not recoil if looked at. If attacked, it may vanish and reappear elsewhere. Phanta can be defeated with any regular attack, and grants no Copy Ability if inhaled.
