Paint Slime is a limbless, featureless blob of orange goo, presumably paint. In Kirby Mass Attack, the enemy is tiny and brown in color.
Paint Slime is a minion of the boss Heavy Lobster. The robot releases one from its claw as an attack. It jiggles in place, occasionally hopping forward. It is extremely fragile; any one of Kirby's attacks can defeat it. The foe's main purpose is to provide the Paint ability which can be used to blind Heavy Lobster.
Paint Slime appears exclusively in the Kirby Brawlball sub-game. Heavy Lobster deploys three of them at a time. They energetically hop around the pinball table and explode when touched. These explosions leave behind giant goo splatters on the screen that obscure the player's view for approximately seven seconds.
- In Kirby Super Star Ultra’s Milky Way Wishes, The Arena, and Helper to Hero sub-games, a Paint Slime assembly line can be seen in the background during the battle with Heavy Lobster.
