Haltworker is a small, bipedal creature with white hands and blue feet. It has a black face with yellow eyes. The enemy wears a white and brown costume with an elongated head, and carries a laser blaster.
Haltworkers first appear in Stage 1 of Access Ark. They walks along the ground slowly, occasionally stopping to fire an electrical projectile from its blaster. Some Haltworkers run or stand in one spot. If a Haltworker is positioned on a different plane from Kirby, the enemy fires across the gap to hit him. Its aim is sharper than usual when shooting across planes.
Haltworker's name is a portmanteau of the words Haltmann, the name of the Haltmann Works Company, and worker, describing the enemy's position as an employee.
