Venogoo is a cyan and blue blob. It has the face of a toad with yellow eyes and slitted pupils. The enemy has no limbs.
Venogoo 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.
Venogoo is able to spit goo across planes with a sharper aim than it would have otherwise.
Venogoo is likely a portmanteau of “venom” and “goo,” referring to both Venogoo’s poisonous attacks and its slime-like body.
- Venogoo's physical appearance and attacks bear a strong resemblance to Miasmoros, a mid-boss and member of the Galboros family. As such, Venogoo itself may be a smaller member of this family, alongside Galbo and Water Galbo.
