Degout is a floating, robotic foe resembling a knight's helmet with a single glaring eye. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, its eye is orange. In Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot, its eye is whiteish-tan.
Some Degouts have a red tint and a red eye.
Like Mumbies and Scarfy, Degout only attacks Kirby when his back is turned. The main difference between this enemy and other un-inhalable enemies is Degout's tremendous amount of health. Degout has tough armor, so a strong Copy Ability is recommended for defeating it. The player must be careful when attacking a Degout, as it will follow him/her if it survives the first attack. There are also red Degouts that only attack when Kirby or one of his teammates is holding a key, much like a Hunter Scarfy.
Degout appears in the Item Challenge of Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It appears in the New Challenge Stages in Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition as well. It appears in the Smash Combat Chamber.
