|“||When you swim the underwater rapids, you'll encounter some Squisters. If those squid-like enemies see you, they'll rocket toward your position. There's a medal around a certain pair of Squisters.”|
|— Daroach • Kirby Mass Attack|
Squister is a blue or purple squid with two beady eyes, four arms, and two tentacles. Altogether, it looks like a more colorful Squishy.
Squister appears exclusively in Stage 1 of Sandy Canyon, Stages 5 and 6 of Dedede Resort, and Stage 4 of Volcano Valley. It attacks by charging up and shooting through the water like a dart, damaging any Kirbys it hits and launching others that are not close enough to be hit directly. After crashing into a wall or similar surface, the enemy is stunned for a few seconds, providing the player an opportunity to safely attack it. Squister takes many Kirbys or multiple assaults from a small group to be defeated.
Purple Squister's attack has different traits from its blue counterpart's. The squid aims itself at the Kirbys rather than shooting in a set direction and is strong enough to break Star Blocks.
