— Figurine description of Shockcreepa from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
Shockcreepa is an enemy which made its first appearance in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, resembling a tall amorphous purple blob with a yellow face similar in style to Kirby's. It appears in a random spot on solid ground, and aimlessly moves along floors, walls, and ceilings. Shockcreepa is hazardous even to attack, and the only way to defeat it is through the use of an Invincible Candy. Defeating it in this way awards 100 points and 3 Point Stars.
In Story Mode, Shockcreepa appears only in Infiltrate the Junk Factory!, but it also appears in a few Challenge Mode stages.
