Blinkbats are large blue spherical bat-like creatures that each have a single, angry-looking eye. They sport small tails, pointy ears and small bat-like wings.
Blinkbats have only appeared in this game. They float around the various different stages, especially those where bosses lurk, and simply follow Kirby in an attempt to bump into him. They can only be defeated with the use of the Mike item, or by hitting them while Kirby is invincible.
