Pluid[Japanese title] is an enemy introduced in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, which grants the Water ability when it is swallowed.

Pluid represents a droplet of water with two red eyes, and its name is based off the word fluid, representing its liquid nature. It releases droplets while on the ceiling, but this does not affect its size in the long run.

Pluid spends most of its time hanging from ceilings, and will drop down if approached. Its only means of attack is by contact, and although its drop may take the unwary adventurer by surprise, it is not hard to defeat.
