Searches is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It yields the Crash ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Searches is a dark gray metallic sphere with four red bumps protruding from its sides. Its center is yellow and slightly recessed. Positioned on the center is a pair of angry brown eyes that are slightly concealed by its metal hull.

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, its center is slightly less recessed, and thus its eyes are more visible.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Searches will float in midair, blinking occasionally. If Kirby approaches the enemy, it will emit a beeping noise, and its body and eyes will turn red. Seconds later, it will violently self-destruct, destroying anything caught in the explosion.

Searches appears in the Whip and Bomb Challenges as well.

Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition

Searches appears in the New Challenge Stages mode, specifically in the Wing Challenge. The behavior of the enemy has not changed since Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Searches acts exactly as it does in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.


Searches' name is derived from the word "search," referring to the enemy's habit of constantly checking if Kirby is nearby.


  • Searches' appearance and behavior are extremely similar to those of Blasto* from Kirby's Block Ball. They both share a spherical body, four spherical bumps protruding from their bodies, and glaring eyes. Blasto can leave behind Crash items that cause vast explosions, and Searches can also create sizable blasts.
  • Searches bears a resemblance to Flamer and Elec.
