In the dark woods of this island, there are two particularly bad-tempered trees. They're a difficult duo, since one blows at you, while the other has a spiked nose. The rumor is those two are tight with the Skull Gang.

Little Woods is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack. It is a member of the Whispy Woods family.

Physical Appearance

Little Woods looks like a miniature version of Whispy Woods, but with no apples and a stubby nose instead of a pointed one.


Kirby Mass Attack

Little Woods attacks.

Little Woods appears exclusively in Stage 8 of Green Grounds. It has two variants: a bare variant and a leafy one. The bare one is the most common, often blocking entrances. When the Kirbys approach, it puffs out its cheeks for a brief moment before angrily jutting out its nose, now pointy. This damages the heroes if they touch it. The enemy can also blow three air puffs that do not inflict damage, but instead knock Kirbys back, dizzying them momentarily.

The leafy variant of Little Woods is uncommon, appearing only three times in the game. It attacks the Kirbys by puffing out its cheeks and blowing three air puffs at them. The tree's canopy twitches.

The player can defeat Little Woods by flicking the Kirbys into it. The tree's bark becomes more chipped and cracked as it takes damage, and the enemy looks demoralized. After seven hits, it falls over and vanishes. The Kirbys can grab onto and tear off the canopy of leafy Little Woods, often revealing something hidden inside—the first tree hides a melon, the second a bonus door, and the third nothing. The enemy shakes uncomfortably as the Kirbys grab its canopy and looks horrified when they rip it off.

Little Woods appears in two sub-games as well. In Kirby Brawlball, one appears on either side of Whispy Woods, occasionally blowing three air puffs to knock Kirby off course and defend the boss. One hit from Kirby defeats each, but they reappear after a number of seconds. In Stage 1 of Strato Patrol EOS, Little Woods sits motionless on the ground and does not attack. The player can defeat it with only a few shots.

Rough stuff, taking on tough trees. Did you know that you can give trees a good body slam to put them in their place? Good luck with that.

You can easily defeat all of the menacing trees on this island. Just smash into their trunks. I wonder if it's worth searching their leafy branches first?

In one of the darkest woods around here, the trees are very mean spirited. One of them has something useful on top of its head. I'm not saying that it's a medal... But it could help you find a medal. Be sure to search its leafy noggin before you take out its trunk, or else you won't find it.

  • There is one bare Little Woods in the game that uses a nose attack rather than blowing air puffs. It is located in the bonus door hidden in the branches of a leafy Little Woods.
