Kirby Wiki

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. She forces a big kiss on Kirby, damaging him and leaving him stunned for several seconds while he wipes the excessive amount of lipstick off his face.

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


Leap's name is a corruption of lip, referring to her 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.
