Water Galbo[Japanese title] is a variation on the fire-breathing Galbo enemy that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. The main difference from a standard Galbo is that the Water Galbo spits streams of water as opposed to bursts of fire and is blue instead of red. When inhaled, it yields the Water Copy Ability.

The Mid-Boss Water Galboros is a giant version of the Water Galbo and also grants the Water ability.


In Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Water Galbo can be found in the following levels and stages:
