Popon is an enemy in Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby Star Allies. It is a monster which resembles a green blob with two eyes, able to grow into a tall stack of blobs when Kirby approaches it. A Popon attacks by separating individual segments from its body and tossing them at Kirby, causing itself to shrink again. These segments can be inhaled and spat back at it. Attacking a Popon that is more than one segment in height only causes it to shrink instead of defeating it immediately. Once only a single segment is left, however, it can be inhaled or destroyed by any attack.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Dream Land 3

Popon first appeared as an enemy in this title. It can be found in various stages, but mostly in Sand Canyon. It provides no Copy Ability when swallowed.

Kirby: Star Allies

Popon makes a cameo in the Goal Game for this title, serving as a de-facto spring for the platform which bounces Kirby and his friends upward. But besides this, Popon does not appear anywhere else.


Another Popon in gigantic size takes the place of Chef Shiitake in a episode of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. When defeated after Kirby uses the Cook Copy Ability, Popon is reduced to nothing more than a puffball.
