Kirby's Dream Land 3 artwork
Captain Stitch is a mid-boss that appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and 3. He gives the Needle ability when inhaled. He appeared in the Kirby of the Stars Pilot along with Master Green, Blocky, Meta Knight, Dark Matter, Ice Dragon and Nightmare. Though he heavily resembles a Gordo, Captain Stitch isn't invincible all the time.
Captain Stitch flies about, following Kirby to wherever he stands, stopping to throw his spikes off of him, which Kirby has to inhale and quickly spit back at him before he grows new ones. He cannot be hurt when he has his spikes. Captain Stitch can also charge into the wall, which knocks off his spikes as well. Because of his invincibility with his spikes, Captain Stitch is considered one of the most difficult mid-bosses in Kirby history.
