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 by forcing a big kiss. It latches and busses a big one onto Kirby, knocking him damaged and stunned to a several seconds of disgusted wiping of his face. A strange fact is that at first, Kirby seems to enjoy the kiss, but soon the lips prove to be too big for him and he wipes off the lipstick in disgust.
Leap's name is a corruption of lip, referring to its oversized lips.
- 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.
