|This article has been proposed to be merged with Captain Stitch|
|Users can discuss, support or oppose the proposal on the Talk page|
|Reason: "Blasto" is based on Captain Stitch (given the eyes and damage sprite) and was possibly redesigned because Needle's representative is Spikey in the Kirby's Block Ball.|
|This article has a conjectural title|
|There is no official information available about its title, so it has been given a fitting one.|
|“||The cavorting creampuff also meets a brooding bomber who turns out to be a nice guy, after all. When his fuse burns down, he blows up blocks that Kirby can't demolish by himself. It's a blast!”|
|— Description • Nintendo Power (Volume #83)|
Blasto appears in Stages 6, 9, and 11. It slowly moves back and forth, minding its own business. If Kirby hits it twice, it is defeated and drops a Crash item; this detonates upon contact with Kirby and the resulting explosion melts all nearby Metal Blocks. This is required to clear multiple rounds in the game.
- Captain Stitch looks extremely similar to Blasto due to the expressions it makes, right down to changing color when it is damaged. The later enemies Blado and Searches also bear a resemblance to it, with the latter even capable of blasts that may be akin to Blasto leaving behind a Crash item.
