Walf is a small amphibious turtle-like enemy that is found mainly in water levels. It resembles a turtle floatie toy, and, much like those, will float on water as opposed to sinking like most land-based enemies. It is not very strong, and can only harm Kirby and his friends by making contact. Walf does not yield any Copy Ability if inhaled.
