Like Noos, Mopoos live in the clouds, but they fly out from underneath Kirby as he walks or flies nearby. Be very careful when you see either a Mopoo or a Noo—they tend to hang out together and don't announce their arrival.
— Description • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards Official Strategy Guide (Prima)[1]

Mopoo is an enemy in Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It is a white-and-blue spherical ray with a happy face and a white tail that is made up of smaller white rays. It usually hangs out in the cloud and snow levels. Mopoo leaps or flies around and gives no ability when swallowed. A giant Mopoo is the mid-boss at the end of Stage 2 of Shiver Star in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, with smaller Propellers to be inhaled and fired at it.

Mopoo's name may be a corruption of もふもふ/モフモフ (mofumofu), an onomatopoeia meaning "fluffy".


  • The Prima strategy guide for Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is flawed; it states that Noos attack Kirby by flying at Kirby and that they appear alongside Mopoos in the clouds.
  • Zebon and Mopoo are greatly similar in appearance in official artwork, aside from having different colors.
