Kirby Mass Attack sprite
Awadoron is an orange clam with purple eyes. It has many similar looks to that of a regular clam.
Awadoron appears exclusively in Stages 4 and 10 of Volcano Valley. It does not do any harm to Kirbys. When approached, it awakens and flees slowly. The enemy releases an air bubble each time a Kirby is flicked into it. The enemy cracks slightly with each hit, and after sustaining a great number of them, it shatters, leaving behind a collection of air bubbles. When Awadoron reaches a certain distance from the Kirbys, it laughs and swims out of view.
The Kirbys must use its air bubbles in order to survive certain pools of murky water.
泡 (awa) means "bubbles," which is what it expels when a Kirby collides with it. 泥 (doro) means "mud," referencing that it only appears in murky water.
