Togekuki is a small orange sphere with a single eye. Three pink spikes protrude from its top and a cactus-like vine grows from its bottom.
The enemy doesn't attack and merely serves as an obstacle to hinder Kirby's progress. Togekuki is one of the more durable enemies in the game, as its head can only be defeated once its vine is destroyed -- this can take several hits. As a simple head, Togekuki can be inhaled or defeated with any other attack.
Togekuki's name comes from the Japanese word for thorn, とげ/棘 (toge); and the Japanese word for stem, くき/茎 (kuki).
