Snoozroot is a fairly common type of enemy found in Kirby Mass Attack. It is a plant-like creature which stays in place, consisting of a bud-like head with a bow-like set of leaves, attached to a long vine. As its name implies, it is typically asleep, but when Kirbys draw near, it will awaken, and try to spit at them. Its dark purple poisonous goop will entrap a Kirby if it hits, and if not removed by tapping that Kirby, he will be KO'd. Snoozroot is fairly tough, requiring at least 4 Kirbys to take out in one attack.

All Snoozroots are capable of hanging from ceilings, and all of them (save for Fire Snoozroot) are weak to fire. Some Snoozroots will hide under Jerkweed plants, and one in particular disguises itself as a Spinwheel Flower.

Variants[edit]

There are several variants of Snoozroot, which have varying characteristics. The following table goes over each of them:
