Kirby Mass Attack artwork
|“||Within the underwater rapids is a formidable fish called the Eelongo. It races around so powerfully that it crushes anything in its path. That includes metal blocks. So follow the Eelongo to see if it breaks into any places you can't.”|
|— Daroach • Kirby Mass Attack|
These enemies do not go after Kirby, but they chase after schools of small, orange fish which always appear before the Eelongo. They cannot be defeated, but the appearance of the orange fish give ample warning for Kirby to avoid its dangerous jaw.
A larger, stone version called King Eelongo appears twice in game, and as its name says, it rules over the Eelongo. Air bubbles precede its appearance instead of the fish. This variety can be defeated by destroying all of its segments, although missing its body and hitting its exposed spine will hurt Kirby.
Eelongo may be a play on the words eel, the species, and long.
Eelongo are large, generic purple eels with yellow fins.
- Eelongo can only be defeated by the effects of Invincibility Candy. It doesn't have a defeated animation, so it abruptly stops swimming and flashes. Multiple explosions occur on its body, and it fades away shortly thereafter.
