KatAMRolyPoly.png Roly-Poly is a common type of enemy appearing only in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. It is a round, blue creature roughly the size of Kirby himself with two circular, black eyes, a short snout and a pair of dark blue feet.


Instead of walking, Roly-Polys, as their name implies, move by rolling. They are usually found standing in one place at the top of a slope, where they wait for Kirby to come near so they can attempt to bowl him over. While they are capable of rolling around on any surface, their speed quickly snowballs while they tumble down a decline. A very numerous and all-around basic foe, a Roly-Poly can be quickly disposed of with any attack, and does not yield a Copy Ability when swallowed.


Roly-Poly can be found in every major area of the Mirror World, with the exception of the Dimension Mirror.
