|This article is about the enemy in Kirby Star Allies. For the enemy in Kirby's Dream Land 2, see Floaty the Drifter. For the enemy in Kirby Mass Attack, see Floaty Woods.|
Floaty the Cell Core is a large, round, red creature with four spherical bumps protruding from each side of its body. It has a peach-colored face with two maroon eyes. The enemy floats inside a bubble of water shaped roughly like its body.
- The first hovers in place and periodically fires blobs of water in whatever direction it is facing.
- The second, however, slowly drifts toward Kirby while occasionally stopping to attack, firing the blobs of water in his direction (either up, down, left or right; whichever is closest).
Floaty appears in the game's boss rush mode, The Ultimate Choice, as a part of Mid-Boss All-Stars #2. Two Floaties appear in the three hardest levels of difficulty (Fiery Showdown, Infernal Crisis and Soul Melter), between Chef Kawasaki and Twin Vividria.
Two Floaties appear once more during the fight against Mr. Frosty in Soul Melter EX.
- Floaty the Cell Core is one of the six enemies in Kirby Star Allies that grants a Copy Ability but cannot be captured with a Friend Heart; the other five being Donpuff, Noddy, Walky, Shield Guard, and Bomber.
- Floaty the Cell Core and Shield Guard are the only two of these enemies who grant a Copy Ability that has a Helper.
