K64 Zoos Sprite.png Zoos is an enemy in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, first discovered in Stage 1 of Aqua Star. It yields the Spark Copy Ability when swallowed. Zoos also appears on the 59th Enemy Info Card.

Zoos is a small spritely creature that sits atop a small thundercloud. When Kirby approaches, it will hover over him and attempt to cast lightning down at him. If Kirby is directly underneath, it will instead attack him using a large raindrop from its cloud. Though inhaling Zoos is possible in most cases, Kirby may have difficulty with doing so given its usual position.


Zoos can be found in the following levels and stages:

  • The name 'Zoos' is a pun on the Greek god Zeus. This similarity is strengthened by the fact that Zoos throws lightning from a cloud.
