Pult is a reddish stone creature. Its hue resembles terra cotta, and it has a craggy body. A mouth is carved into it with six rectangular teeth, and its eyes are black with white pupils. The creature sits atop a small metal base and has a mechanical arm. The "hand" on the arm is a purple crescent.
Pult is a simple enemy: Instead of moving about, it stays in one spot. It attacks the Kirbys' tank by hurling boulders at it. Pult has to charge up before tossing a rock, which gives the player some time to destroy it. When it is done throwing the rock, it creates another and waits a second or two for the first one to hit.
The boulders launch in a wide arc and move slowly through the air, so the player has time to destroy it by firing Kirbys at it. When Pult is hit with a flying Kirby, its body begins cracking. After three hits, the enemy is defeated.
Pult's is derived from catapult, describing the enemy's design.
