Water Galbo's appearance is near identical to its fire counterpart. It is a limbless dragon-like creature with light blue skin and a white underbelly. It has a jagged mouth and bright blue spikes running along its back.
Like Galbo, Water Galbo is immobile. When Kirby approaches, it opens its eyes and spits a wave of water at him. This wave travels across the ground until it hits a wall, much like Water Kirby's Water Stream attack. A larger version of this enemy named Water Galboros appears in the game as a mid-boss.
Water Galbo appears in the Water Challenge.
