Squishy is among the oldest and most ubiquitous enemies of the Kirby series, making its first appearance in Kirby's Dream Land, the first game of the series, and appearing in most main series titles since then. Squishy appears to be a white squid with two thin, vertical lines resembling its eyes. It can operate both on land and in water, as well as occasionally fly through the air. On land, it usually jumps or waddles about, attempting to collide with Kirby. In the water, it will swim in bursts, rather than at a continuous pace. It does not yield any Copy Ability when swallowed.

Sometimes, Squishy is replaced by a more formidable enemy that mimics its behavior, called Flotzo. This is the case in Extra Game in Kirby's Dream Land, and in Revenge of the King in Kirby Super Star Ultra. In earlier titles, Squishy could be seen swimming in water or flying through the air. Starting with Kirby's Return to Dream Land, however, these enemies became strictly aquatic swimmers, and are no longer able to fly, instead becoming grounded if found outside of water.

Game appearances[edit]

KirbyBuilding.png This article or section is under construction. Therefore, please excuse its informal appearance while it's being worked on. We hope to have it completed as soon as possible.

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

Squishy makes its debut appearance in the very first Kirby game. Here, it can be found in the Float Islands stage, where it can be seen swimming through water, jumping out of water, and floating through the air. Subsequent titles would remove Squishy's ability to fly through the air like this.

Squishy is worth 400 points when defeated. In the Extra Game, it is replaced by Flotzo.

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

Squishy returns in this title and its remake, serving as an amphibious foe who is just as at home on land as in the water. It retains its ability to leap, and can waddle around on dry land as quickly as a Waddle Dee.

Locations[edit]

Squishy is a comparatively rare enemy in Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, appearing in only a few stages. Strangely enough, it is not found anywhere in Ice Cream Island or Orange Ocean, despite being an aquatic foe who would be at home in those levels. Squishy can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

Squishy (known here as Squishy Squid[1]) makes an appearance in Poppy Brothers' Land. It initially appears inside a thought cloud of one of the Kirbys on the board. If the Kirby is hit while Squishy is in there, the Squishy Squid will be released into the middle of the board, where it can help Kirby reach the higher board.

Squishy Squid also makes an appearance in the mini-game of the same board, as the goalie on a soccer field. Kirby's job here is to try and get past the squid and into the goal. If the squid catches Kirby, it will throw him back toward the bottom of the board.

Kirby's Dream Course[edit]

Squishy appears as a common enemy in this title. It does not provide any ability when defeated.

Kirby's Dream Land 2[edit]

Squishy appears in this game, occupying the same role that it did in previous main-series titles. It is once gain just as at home on land as in water.

Locations[edit]

Squishy can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby's Avalanche[edit]

Squishy appears as the opponent of Stage 5 in this game. It plays by attempting to line up blobs such that they string together in fours, creating chains of eight total.

Kirby's Block Ball[edit]

In this title, Squishy appears as a pre-boss enemy in Stage 2, and is worth 5000 points when defeated. It is followed by a Big Squishy boss.

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)[edit]

Squishy returns in both of these games as a common enemy, largely unchanged in basic look and behavior from its previous appearances.

In Revenge of the King, Squishy is replaced by a similar enemy called Flotzo.

Squishy can be found in the following places in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra:

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

Squishy returns in this title, bearing its look and behavior from Nightmare in Dream Land. There is only one Squishy in the entire game, however, appearing in Moonlight Mansion - Room 17. Kirby must swim and stay afloat in a certain region underwater, and a Squishy will slowly swim up.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Kirby: Planet Robobot & Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Kirby's Blowout Blast[edit]

Squishy appears in this title as a common enemy. It can be seen holding still, waddling about, or jumping in great leaps. It is worth 100 points when defeated solo, with multiples of that awarded for appropriate combos.

Trivia[edit]

  • Squishys bear a resemblance to the Blooper, a squid-like enemy from the Mario franchise. They are similar in both attack patterns and appearance.
