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

Physical Appearance

Snoozroot is a green plant enemy with a bead-like stem with two leaves at its base. It has an ovular head, yellow cheek blushes, large yellow lips, and a red bow on its head.

Games

Kirby Mass Attack

Snoozroot appears exclusively in Stages 1, 5, and 6 of Green Grounds; and Stage 9 of Sandy Canyon. Its primary trait is its drowsiness; it is often found sleeping. When the Kirbys approach, it awakens and, after a moment, spits a venomous glob. If a Kirby is hit by it, he gets encapsulated in the venom and flails wildly; the player has only a few seconds to rescue him by rapidly tapping him. If the Kirby is not rescued, he is KO'd.

Snoozroot can grow out of the ground or ceiling. Some hide under Jerkweeds and one disguises itself as a Spinwheel Flower. The latter is extremely tall due to its longer than average stem.

Snoozroot can be easily defeated with just a few Kirbys or repeated attacks from one. This enemy has three other variations: Swell Snoozroot, Sand Snoozroot, and Fire Snoozroot.

Etymology

Snoozroot's name is a portmanteau of the words "snooze," which refers to its habit of sleeping; and "root," which refers to the fact that it is a plant.

Its Japanese name, ウトウト (Utouto), comes from the Japanese onomatopoeia for dozing off.

You know those little plants that are always dozing off? They're Snoozroots. Probably best to mess with them only when they're sleeping.
