Tincells are rare enemies that only appear during boss fights with Sweet Stuff in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and 3.

Physical Appearance

Tincells are yellow starfish with five limbs and one eye.


Kirby's Dream Land 2

Tincells make their first appearance in this game. They only appear in the boss fight with Sweet Stuff. Their eye can be blown back at them. Out of water, they can be inhaled and spat back at Sweet Stuff.

Kirby's Dream Land 3

Tincells reappear in this game, where they again appear alongside Sweet Stuff. In this title, they, along with Sweet Stuff, are paintings drawn by Ado.


Tincell's name may be a pun on the word tinsel, an object put on a Christmas tree for decoration that sometimes contains small stars.


  • Tincell is also similar to Dark Nebula in a way that they are both star shaped with a single eye and both seem to have been influenced by Dark Matter, and to a lesser extent, Zero.
