|“||Where can you get water in such baking places? Hmm. Tricky. You'll have to be clever about it. Watch out for Cryballs. If you make those odd eyeballs cry, you'll scare yourself up a nice shower.”|
|— Daroach • Kirby Mass Attack|
Cryball is an eyeball with tiny orange wings and three metal eyelashes.
Cryball appears exclusively in Stage 1 of Volcano Valley. It hovers above the Kirbys before darting down on them with its pointy eyelashes. Any Kirbys that are hit by this attack are instantly KO'd. If the heroes are flicked into its eye, Cryball releases giant tears and begins crying. The tears can be used to make trees or jerkweeds grow. If a Kirby tries to hit a Cryball when it is charging, he is bounced away. Touching the creature's eyelashes at any time is dangerous. After sustaining three hits, Cryball is defeated.
Cryball's name is a combination of the words cry (referring to the weeping the foe does when hit) and eyeball (referring to its appearance).
