Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land artwork
Coner is a yellow hermit crab with big eyes with white pupils and green irises. It has a green shell, huge claws, and minuscule legs.
Coner attempts to attack Kirby by scooting around with its shell. It is among the few enemies that can attack the hero both on land and in the water. Coner is immune to Kirby's inhale when hiding in its shell, though this is the only game in the series where it can do that.
Coner behaves roughly the same way it does in Kirby's Dream Land. It can move both slowly and quickly.
Coner's name is derived from the word cone, referencing the shape of its shell. It may also be named after the cone shell, a species of shelled mollusk.
