Spynum is an enemy that debuted in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It yields the Archer ability when swallowed, and so far is the only enemy who yields this ability. Spynum is a blue vaguely humanoid figure who wears a red feather cap and purple cloak. It bears a bow, which it can use to decent accuracy to fire at intruders, from across the screen as well as from the background or foreground. It has low HP, so if Kirby manages to get up close, Spynum does not have much in the means of defense, since its firing speed is rather slow.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Spynum made its debut appearance as an enemy in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Spynum is first encountered in the Lollipop Land level, and has occasional appearances in every subsequent level. In Royal Road, there also exists an insectoid variant of the Spynum, Sectra Spynum, which serves as a soldier in the Sectonian army.

Locations[edit]

Sectra Spynum, from Royal Road.

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe Spynum can be found in the following levels and stages:
