Flotzo is a red octopus that replaces Squishy in Kirby's Dream Land's Extra mode. He has a glum expression on his face and two dots (one on top, one on bottom) on each arm. Flotzo attacks just like Squishy but is stronger and faster.
Flotzo didn't appear in any game for a long time but he returned in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, then made a short cameo in the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! episode, "A Fish Called Kine", and eventually returned in the Revenge of the King sub-game in Kirby Super Star Ultra, once again replacing Squishy. Lately, one appears along with Sweet Stuff and another Squishy in the Kirby Master mode of Kirby Mass Attack.
- In the Kirby: Right Back At Ya! episode "Kirby Comes to Cappy Town", when the monster named Octacon transforms into his true form, he bears a slight resemblance to a Flotzo in color and appearance.
- Flotzo bears a similar appearance to the Pokémon Octillery.
