Mini Lobster is a small robot designed to resemble a crustacean. It is equipped with a gold exterior, green eyes, two claws, and two back-mounted, winged turbines. It ordinarily has no feet or legs, though it does in Kirby Mass Attack.
Mini Lobster also has silver and red color palettes.
Mini Lobster is a minion of the boss Heavy Lobster. Heavy Lobster deploys one from his claw and sends it out to attack. The enemy slides quickly along the ground, exploding if it makes contact with Kirby. If the hero evades it, the small robot drives off-screen. Ultimately, Mini Lobster primarily exists to be used as ammunition against Heavy Lobster if Kirby fights it without a Copy Ability.
Heavy Lobster deploys red Mini Lobsters if Paint Kirby attacks it. These behave no differently than gold or silver ones.
Mini Lobster is noticeably larger in Kirby Super Star Ultra than in Kirby Super Star.
Mini Lobster appears exclusively in the Kirby Brawlball sub-game. Heavy Lobster deploys up to three Mini Lobsters from its mouth. They scurry downward toward Kirby or the flippers, mainly serving as a distraction to get in the way of the player's shots.
- Mini Lobsters are painted red when Kirby attacks with the Paint ability, despite the fact that only Heavy Lobster's exterior is hit with the paint.
