Searches[Japanese title] is a hovering enemy introduced in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, which grants the Crash ability when swallowed. Their appearance is similar to a Flamer.

Searches is a disc-shaped black bomb with a yellow face consisting of only a pair of angry eyes, and four red bumpy extrusions, one on each side. It hovers in place and waits for an intruder to enter its proximity. Then it lights its fuse, turning red and, if not stopped, detonates in a large explosion that can harm at great range.

Kirby stands under a Searches that is about to explode. Not an optimal strategy.
