Peloo is a floating, smiling face with round, blue eyes, about twice as big as Kirby.
Peloo only appears in this game. The enemy mainly appears out of nowhere, looking for Kirby, and when it comes close enough, it drops its tongue to try to grab him. If it manages to grab him, it will chew Kirby up and then spit him out, causing him damage. Peloo is invincible, and cannot be inhaled.
- Peloo's attack style is somewhat the inspiration for that of the later enemy Glom, as both attempt to chew and spit Kirby out when he gets close.
