Space Jellies are red jellyfish with four dark pink tentacles and two green and yellow button eyes. They are bigger than any other jelly-like enemy in the game.
Space Jellies attack by releasing three green balls of energy. If these energy spheres were to come in contact with Kirby or Prince Fluff, they would take damage and lose beads. Space Jellies are only encountered when Kirby is in his Saucer Transformation and can only be defeated with a fully charged Saucer attack.
Space Jelly's name comes from "Jelly," referencing its species as a jellyfish, and "Space," referencing the environment where it appears.
Its Japanese name, カラゲン (Karagen), is a portmanteau of the Japanese word for jellyfish, クラゲ/くらげ/海月/水母 (kurage); and the Japanese word for void, から/空 (kara).
