Kirby Wiki

A Big Schnoz lurks near that medal. To defeat him, you'll need to push against him as many times as you can, and as FAST as possible.

Big Schnoz is a large enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack. He is a member of the Schnoz family.

Physical Appearance

Big Schnoz is a large, red, dog-like bipedal creature. He has large fangs sticking out of his mouth, both with the ends worn flat from unseen use. Big Schnoz has a prominent, round nose. Like his relatives, he paws the ground like a rhinoceros before charging at a block, which kinks his nose somewhat.


Kirby Mass Attack

Big Schnoz appears exclusively in Stage 5 of Green Grounds and Stage 6 of Volcano Valley. Like Schnoz and Giant Schnoz, he pushes around large Heave Ho Blocks. If the Kirbys face him, they must throw themselves at the enemy's block to push it; if they don't, Big Schnoz pushes the block in such a way that it prevents the player from obtaining a medal, or the block crushes and KOs the Kirbys. It takes considerably more pushing and shoving for the heroes to overpower him. Like Schnoz, Big Schnoz walks away from the block if he pushes it as far as he can or if the player takes too long pushing against him.
