Venog is a cyan and blue blob. It has the face of a toad with yellow eyes and slitted pupils. The enemy has no limbs.
Venog first appears in Stage 3 of Resolution Road and reappears in many stages thereafter. It creeps across the ground in short strides, occasionally stopping to attack if Kirby draws near. It either spits a blob of poisonous goo from its mouth or shakes its body wildly, throwing blobs of goo in several directions. If a blob of goo hits the ground, it forms a hazardous puddle that remains for a few seconds.
Venog is able to spit goo across planes with a sharper aim than it would have otherwise.
Venog is a portmanteau of "venom" and "frog," referring to both Venog’s poisonous attacks and its somewhat frog-like appearance.
- Venog's physical appearance and attacks bear a strong resemblance to Miasmoros, a mid-boss and member of the Galboros family. As such, Venog itself may be a smaller member of this family, alongside Galbo and Water Galbo.
