Crimp is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby: Squeak Squad.

Physical Appearance

Crimp is a yellow blob with an ovular mouth, green spider-like legs and round black eyes. The bombs it shoots are green.


Kirby: Squeak Squad

Crimp has only appeared in Kirby: Squeak Squad to date. It likes to hang out on walls, climbing up and down them as it does so. Whenever it spots Kirby, it will begin to spit out small, round bombs that explode on contact. It yields no ability and is best taken care of by Ninja Kirby, since it spends a lot of time sticking to walls.


Crimp can refer to a type of pinching motion, which is similar to the way Crimp walks. It may also be a corruption of the word "climb," referencing how it walks on walls.


  • Crimp can fall off its wall if hit by a weak attack. When this happens, the Crimp will bounce around on the floor, spinning uncontrollably, until it has either touched a wall or bounced off screen. This behavior, along with some additional unused behaviors, can be more easily seen by possessing Crimp with Ghost.
