Pupa is an enemy found in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It is first encountered in Stage 2 of Pop Star. It does not provide any Copy Ability.

Pupa is a limbless teardrop-shaped creature with a black head (with two beady eyes) and striped red and yellow body. It hangs upside-down from a string, lowering its position when Kirby approaches. It can only hurt Kirby by direct contact, and after it lowers, it remains motionless. Kirby cannot inhale Pupa, but he can defeat it easily by cutting its string, or by using his abilities to attack the Pupa itself. Pupa will explode when it hits the ground after its string is cut, so Kirby should take caution if he defeats it this way.

A larger version of Pupa appears as a Mid-Boss in Stage 3 of Shiver Star. Unlike its smaller cousins, its string cannot be cut, and it will repeatedly re-position itself during the fight.
