Kirby gained the mysterious Mouthful Mode ability after he flew through that vortex... Now he can stuff a huge amount of water into his mouth! Fill yourself up at a water pipe, wobble over to a patch of muck, and spray it away to clear a path forward. Thanks for cleaning up!
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Water-Balloon Mouth is a Mouthful Mode that involves Kirby filling himself with a large amount of water, distending his body like a water balloon (and even becoming translucent like one) and allowing him to spray the water from his mouth. Kirby can obtain this ability by finding a blue water pipe and putting his mouth on it. Doing so allows him to clean up patches of mud, toxic goop, or lava, which may uncover hidden items or cause platforms to rise and fall. This water can also be used to attack enemies, and is required to deflect Runaway Parade Cars or defeat Poison Croakoms and Twirling Star Rockets. Naturally, due to Kirby's inflated size, he becomes a bigger target and is unable to move much aside from wobble about and jump short distances. Eventually, Kirby will gradually shrink back down in size as he runs out of water to spray, with each fill giving him enough to spray for about 15 seconds continuously.
