|— Daroach • Kirby Mass Attack|
Pac Geg is a yellow egg with orange eyes—of which the left appears to be deformed or partially shut—and a jagged mouth. It flies using a pair of insect-like wings.
Due to events that occur in Green Grounds, Big Birdee and her family harbor a grudge against the Kirbys. This changes in Stage 11 of Sandy Canyon when the youngest members of the family, the Wee Birdees, are kidnapped by the Gegs. Big Birdee is grief-stricken by this. The Kirbys break the Wee Birdees out of a cage, defeat their Geg captors, and return them to their mother. This ends the Birdee family's dispute with the heroes.
In this stage, if enough Kirbys are KO'd that a Wee Birdee is left unattended, the player receives an immediate Game Over.
As an enemy
Pac Geg appears exclusively in Stages 8, 9, and 11 of Sandy Canyon. It is the second most common type of Geg, after Mech Geg. It has no direct form of attack. It flies back and forth and, after briefly charging, opens its mouth to drop a Beanbon. The player must flick the Kirbys into Pac Geg to damage it; the enemy cracks more and more as its health is depleted. It drops several fruits when defeated.
Pac Geg's name is an anagram of the word egg, referencing its egg-like appearance. The pac part of its name may be derived from the Japanese onomatopoeia for quick eating, paku-paku, referencing the use of the enemy's mouth for deploying Beanbons.
