Tacotzo[Japanese title] is an enemy from Kirby Mass Attack. It is a large octopus-like enemy with a pin on the back of its head. It holds still and fires three shots from its mouth at a time. Tacotzo tends to hold firmly rooted in place, and can do so on walls and ceilings. It can be defeated by pulling at its pin, deflating it, but if hit anywhere else, the Kirbys will just bounce off. Defeating Tacotzo confers 350 points onto the player. Unlike many other enemies, Tacotzo is never mentioned by Daroach in the English version of the game, and it is named only in the Japanese release.
Tacotzo appears only in Dedede Resort - Stage 6. It can often be found attached to spinning square blocks, holding its position as the square is reoriented by the Kirbys' actions.
