Barracu is a long green fish with wide eyes and large, jagged teeth. Its sides are decorated with darker diamond patterns. The enemy uses its yellow fins to swim.
Barracu swims around, usually in a set path. If Kirby or one of his teammates collides with it, the fish will grab him with its jaws and shake him up and down, damaging him over time. The player must shake the Wii Remote rapidly (or mash the +Control Pad) to escape.
Despite not being named outside of the game's files, Barracu's name is derived from barracuda, the fish upon which the enemy is based.
