Games

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Before Kirby approaches, Drop is stationary, and clings to the ceiling. Once Kirby goes underneath it, however, Drop will elongate and attempt to fall onto Kirby. If it misses, the Drop will land stationary on the floor, and will try another method of attack. When Kirby comes close, the Drop will periodically elongate, attempting to catch Kirby as he jumps; on the other hand, Drop does nothing when Kirby is far away, rendering it harmless. When carried over Kirby's head, the Drop will collapse into water. In this respect, it is similar to Sandman.

Etymology

Drop is named after the word drop. This may refer to Drop's shape: it possesses a droplet-like shape, and it may literally be a drop of water. Alternatively, it may refer to Drop's primary means of attack, which is dropping from the ceiling.
