Laser Ball is a common enemy in the Kirby games. It is an orange ball with eyes, which will try to attack Kirby by firing lasers at him. Similar to most other enemies, Laser Ball also sometimes comes in other colors. Its first appearance was in Kirby's Adventure, and has appeared in almost every game following. In the majority of its appearances, Laser Ball normally grants the Laser ability when inhaled, and in Kirby Super Star and its remake, gives Beam. Keep in mind that Laser Ball is an enemy who can float through walls, making it a challenge to defeat in certain situations. Other enemies that can do this are Cupie and Soarar.
Laser Ball flies around, trying to stay on the same plane as Kirby. Once Laser Ball has gotten Kirby in its line of fire, it will start to glow and shoot out a laser, or possibly a long stream of them. Soon after it shoots, Laser Ball flies away. If Kirby eats one, he gets the Laser ability. Getting hit by Laser Ball stuns Kirby with electric damage like Sparky does.
Laser Ball appears with the same behavior, but its laser beams can now be deflected off thin air. Also, it gives Beam instead of Laser.
In both of these games, Laser Ball appears with the same behavior from Kirby's Adventure, and again it gives Laser when swallowed.
