Snipper is an antlion-like pair of scissors which flies out of pits of quicksand to attack Kirby. It is invulnerable and serves as a hazard to be avoided.

Snipper is a small orange creature with huge pincers. It hides inside sand pits, and will jump up with its huge jaws to snip Kirby if he gets close. Snipper can often be seen guarding Food and other items.

Snipper made its debut in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, but it was also retrofitted into 8-bit in order to appear in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, where it serves the same purpose.
