Barracu is a long green fish with wide eyes, jagged teeth, and yellow fins. Its sides are decorated with darker diamond patterns.
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.
Barracu's name is derived from "barracuda," the fish upon which the enemy is based.
