Corori is an enemy in Kirby's Dream Land 3. He is penguin-type enemy like Pengy and Emp and is well-suited for cold, frigid areas. Once he spots Kirby, he proceeds to squish him with a ball of snow about twice the size of Kirby. Usually, Corori stands perched at the top of a hill or a steep incline, making it easier to roll his snowball down.

Ironically, although Corori is found exclusively in ice areas and attacks by rolling snowballs at Kirby, Corori does not give the Ice ability (or any other ability for that matter).

Corori has yet to appear in any games besides Kirby's Dream Land 3. However, Emps sometimes behave the same in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.

Physical Appearance

Corori is a small purple penguin roughly the same size as Kirby. Despite his small stature, Corori is able to push around massive snowballs with his stout little flippers. He has small, beady black eyes, a white stomach, and wears a knitted orange hat. Unlike the other penguin-inspired enemies in the series, Corori strangely has no feet.


Corori comes from the Japanese word for rolling, コロコロ (Korokoro).
