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. It 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.

Trivia

  • Squishys bear a resemblance to the Blooper, a squid-like enemy from the Mario series. They are similar in both attack patterns and appearance.
  • There is only one Squishy in Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, appearing in a region of Rainbow Route. Kirby must swim and stay afloat in a certain region underwater, and a Squishy will slowly swim up.
