Degout is a floating, robotic foe resembling a knight's helmet with a single glaring eye. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition, its eye is orange. In Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot, its eye is whiteish-tan. Some Degouts have a red tint and a red eye.
Like Mumbies and Scarfy, Degout only attacks Kirby when his back is turned. The main difference between this enemy and other un-inhalable enemies is Degout's tremendous amount of health. Degout has tough armor, so a strong Copy Ability is recommended for defeating it. The player must be careful when attacking a Degout, as it will follow him/her if it survives the first attack. There are also red Degouts that only attack when Kirby or one of his teammates is holding a key, much like a Hunter Scarfy.
Degout appears in the Item Challenge of Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It appears in the New Challenge Stages in Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition as well. It appears in the Smash Combat Chamber.
