Stickle[Japanese title] is an aquatic enemy from Kirby Mass Attack. It is similar to a Blipper in shape and size, but is covered in spikes. While underwater, it is essentially untouchable, but it becomes vulnerable once out of the water. Defeating Stickle confers 300 points onto the player.
Stickle can be said to resemble an armored version of Blipper, and has a similar visor over its eyes.
Stickle can be found in the following levels and stages in Kirby Mass Attack:
