Leap is an enemy native only to the Mirror World, resembling a small round blue creature with tiny wings, rosy cheeks, two black eyes and a pair of large red lips used to attack Kirby. It forces a big wet one on Kirby, damaging him and leaving him stunned for several seconds while he wipes the excessive amount of lipstick off his face. Strangely, Kirby seems to enjoy the kiss until the Leaps' lips prove to be too big for him and he pushes himself away.


Leap also appears in Kirby: Triple Deluxe in the form of a keychain.

Etymology

Leap's name is a corruption of lip, referring to its oversized lips.

Trivia

  • In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, an enemy named Bucculus attacks in a very similar way to Leap: a large, unwanted kiss. A defeated Bucculus will often drop a Maxim Tomato. The differences are that Bucculus inflicts much more damage than a Leap, due to the fact that this kiss drains energy, and also, Bucculus resides underground, not in the air.
