Quewin is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack.

Physical Appearance

Quewin is a creature that resembles a short vacuum tube. It comes in three colors: green, purple, and red.

Games

Kirby Mass Attack

Quewin appears exclusively in Stage 2 of Sandy Canyon and Stages 6 and 10 of Dedede Resort. Green Quewin periodically sucks in water. If a Kirby gets too close to it and is sucked in, he is KO'd and spat out. Purple Quewin periodically does the opposite and expels water, pushing away any Kirbys that get near it. Red Quewin can use both techniques.

When attacking, an arrow symbol appears on the enemy's body, indicating which attack the creature is using. Quewin is invincible and must be avoided.

Etymology

Its name, キューイン (Kyūin), comes from the Japanese word for suction, きゅういん/吸引 (kyūin).

Trivia

  • Green Quewin's attack is similar to the attack used by Shellmic, an aquatic enemy that appears earlier in Kirby Mass Attack. Unlike Shellmic, Green Quewins do not hide, nor can they be defeated.
