||Rafts allow Kirby to travel safely across water. Press the A Button to paddle faster, and paddle into squids to knock them back.

Raft is a water-bound wooden platform which can be ridden in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble. It resembles a traditional wooden raft made of logs wrapped together with rope, and can be found in the waterways of some stages. When Kirby hops on to a raft, he can ride it quickly up rivers, even against the flow of current. The raft is steered by tilting the Game Boy Color and pressing A causes it to gain a brief burst of speed. During this speed boost, the raft can be used to defeat enemies such as Squishy by ramming into them. Otherwise, if Kirby is hit while on the raft, he will be thrown off and have to board again.
