Soarar is a small yellow creature that resembles an arrowhead or a dart with big blue shiny eyes. It has no limbs and has no visible mouth or nose.
This is Soarar's first appearance. They fly back and forth in a particular area. They do not aim for Kirby, however, and are more of a nuisance than an enemy. They shoot pink blasts aimlessly straight forward and then turn with a sharp screeching sound. The blasts travel for an infinite distance.
In this game, Soarar is technically unchanged, but this time around, their ability to fire lasers is rarely used. They can be summoned by Drawcia in the battle against her. Kirby: Canvas Curse marks the first time Soarar has appeared outside of the Mirror World.
Soarar appears in many stages, primarily in Green Grounds. In this game, Soarar does not attack the Kirbys, and instead will be merely flying overhead carrying an item. The enemy can be defeated by only a single Kirby if grabbed while flying; flicking one Kirby with the stylus is ideal for this.
Soarar also appears in the fruit fetching games, where it carries cards with pictures of either a useful object or a Mono Soarar. Depending on the circumstance, the player's goal should be grabbing all the item cards, as he/she is rewarded with the pictured item. If the Kirbys grab a Mono Soarar card, the background turns red and flocks of Mono Soarars barrage them.
In this game, Soarars act as they do in Kirby: Canvas Curse: they aimlessly glide back and forth through the sky. They have lost their ability to fire lasers completely. Like many other enemies in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Soarars have gained the ability to cross between the background and foreground of certain stages. These enemies appear in the Main Mode and Stages 2, 3, and 4 of Dedede's Drum Dash. They also appear in the downloadable Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe.
Soarar retains its behavior in Kirby: Planet Robobot.
Soarar first appears in Stage 1 of Level 4. It flies through the air, often in a line or flock, not trying to cause Kirby any trouble. Like most enemies in the game, scaled-up versions of it appear that can be Inhaled for a Blaster Bullet.
Soarar's name most likely diverges from the word "soar," as a reference to its movement. It may also come from the Japanese word for sky, "sora" (空).

|“||You'd think Soarar is in another stratosphere, but he's actually a rather approachable sort. If he starts attacking, however, best to just get out of his way. I mean it. Run!”|

- During Paint Panic, a Soarar may sometimes appear as one of Paint Roller's paintings.
- In Kirby Mass Attack, Daroach says that Soarars are attracted to shiny things, such as medals.
