|“||And the Clanksprouts that shoot out of the earth can be lured to strike exactly where you want.”|
|— Daroach • Kirby Mass Attack|
Clanksprout is a claw-like foe with a bead-like body and one eye. It is usually teal, but there are also some purple ones as well.
Clanksprout appears as a common enemy in Sandy Canyon, starting in Stage 4. Clanksprout attacks by emerging from dirt, like Warwiggle, to grab a Kirby. If the Kirby is not rescued in time, he is pulled under the ground, instantly KOing him. Clanksprout can sometimes be difficult to defeat, because it reaches a high altitude. Purple Clanksprouts follow the Kirbys to wherever they moved on the dirt, and later emerge, while teal Clanksprouts always emerge from the same spot.
