Twister is a type of enemy appearing throughout the Kirby series. It resembles an orange, top-like creature. Its bottom part is pointed and darker than the rest of its body, while the top part is a lighter shade of orange and has spherical extensions attached to it.

In all its appearances, Twister yields the Tornado Copy Ability.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Twister debuts in Kirby's Adventure, although its design is different from its final one; its lower half is black and appears rounded instead of pointed. The game's remake, Nightmare in Dream Land, however, portrays Twisters in the same way as later games of the series.

Starting with the first door of Ice Cream Island, Twisters turn up in various areas of the game. They are initially stationary, slowly rotating in place, but as soon as Kirby gets near, they quickly increase their spinning speed greatly, lifting off into the air and transforming themselves into a living tornado that flies through walls and can only be harmed by a few Copy Abilities. After a while, provided that it is not currently inside a wall, the Twister slows down, eventually becoming stationary and vulnerable to any attack once more.

A singular, immobile Twister appears in the Museum of Yogurt Yard, providing Kirby with the Tornado ability.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror

In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Twisters reappear, looking and acting the same as in Nightmare in Dream Land. Here, they are comparably rare, being encountered mainly in the mountainous parts of Rainbow Route. Besides appearing as enemies, they can be seen atop the golden socket of the Tornado ability's Copy Pedestal.

Kirby: Canvas Curse

In Canvas Curse, Twister is a rare enemy, only appearing one or two times throughout the whole game.

Kirby: Squeak Squad

In Squeak Squad, Twister is an uncommon enemy, making more appearances than it did in in Kirby: Canvas Curse and Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. In addition to this, Twister can now be playable through the way of the Ghost ability.
