Simirror is a relatively obscure enemy from the Kirby series. Simirror resembles a small wizard with thick hat and robes completely obscuring its body. It attacks by throwing mirror-like projectiles at Kirby, and can also create mirror images of itself. When hit, but not defeated, it will phase out of sight, and reappear somewhere else, much like Kabu sometimes does. It grants Kirby the Mirror ability when swallowed.
Simirror's name is a pun on the words "similar" and "mirror," referencing how mirrors create reflections.
