Kirby Wiki

The aquatic foes that spit geysers upward from their mouths are called Blish. They try to spray water at their prey. I bet you can trick one into blasting its treasure into your hands.

Blish is a large enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack.

Physical Appearance

Blish is a round green fish-like creature with large sideways lips and disproportionately tiny yellow fins and curled tail. It has beady black shiny eyes.


Kirby Mass Attack

Blish appears exclusively in Stage 1 of Sandy Canyon and Stage 7 of Dedede Resort. It resides in water. Every few seconds, it stops to charge its attack, then squirts a powerful geyser upward. This geyser damages the Kirbys if they touch it, though it can also move medals into their reach and break Metal Blocks. Blishes that dwell in wide bodies of water actively follow the Kirbys before charging their attacks.

In most cases, Blish is positioned such that it cannot be defeated, but if the Kirbys can get to it, the enemy is as vulnerable as any other. To defeat it, the player must attack it several times with a few Kirbys or once with a large group.


  • A preliminary screenshot of Kirby Mass Attack shows a smaller Blish with four spikes. The image appears to be a combination of various game elements, though, so its reliability is uncertain.[1]
  • It may be based off an Archerfish, a type of fish that fires water from its mouth to attack, which is similar to that of Blish's attack method.
