Kirby Mass Attack sprite
|“||Keep an eye out for Floaty Woods. You can tip him over and ride him like a raft.”|
|— Daroach • Kirby Mass Attack|
Floaty Woods, unlike the rest of the Whispy Woods "family", has no form of defending himself. Instead he unknowingly functions as a helper of sorts for the Kirbys. When the Kirbys first see him, he appears to be an unassuming tree with a hole in the middle of it. The player must fling all ten Kirbys into the hole, at which point they climb up into the bushel of leaves at his his top and try to uproot him. Aghast and mortified, the tree will awaken and try to shake them off. His efforts will prove useless and he will be detached from his roots, at which point he topples over and becomes a raft for the unrepentant Kirbys.
Floaty Woods looks like a generic sentient tree, about the same size as a Twiggy Woods. Sporting many of the same features as the aforementioned enemy, one key difference is the large accumulation he also features curly, wisp-like leaves on his head, a trait shared by Whispy Woods Jrs. that have somewhat matured. He initially has a large knot in his side, but this transforms into a face once the Kirbys begin to assault him.
Once uprooted and landing in the water, he becomes a floating piece of driftwood and loses all of his leaves (but still retains his face).
