|“||Tortorner has a whole shell made of concrete, as if it walked off with somebody's sidewalk! It has a thick skull and a mean bite, but its body is pretty delicate. A Mouthful Mode ability might help you crack through its shell and land a brutal blow from above!||”|
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Tortorner is a big tortoise-like creature that uses a square of concrete as its shell, which appears as an enemy in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Tortorner sits in place and slowly swivels around in order to try and extend its neck to bite Kirby if he is in range. Tortorner cannot be inhaled nor harmed by any regular attack. The only thing that can defeat it is by using Cone Mouth to slam the top of its "shell" to break it. When doing this, Tortorner's body is revealed to be a stubby thing with a light print of skin resembling a bathing suit, similar to an outline of skin that hasn't been tanned. Although large, Tortorner is not nearly as big as its relative Tortuilding.
Tortorner's name is a portmanteau of the words "tortoise" and "corner".
Tortorner can be found in the following stages:
