Keep an eye out for Floaty Woods. You can tip him over and ride him like a raft.

Floaty Woods is a large enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack.

Physical Appearance

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 of curly, wisp-like leaves on its head, a trait shared by Whispy Woods Jrs. that have somewhat matured. Floaty initially has a large knot in its side, but this transforms into a face once the Kirbys begin to assault it.

Once uprooted and afloat in the water, it becomes a piece of driftwood and loses all of its leaves (but still retains its face).


Kirby Mass Attack

Floaty Woods appears exclusively in Stage 8 of Green Grounds. Unlike the rest of the Whispy Woods family, it has no form of defense. When the Kirbys find it, Floaty appears to be an unassuming tree with a hole in its middle. The player must fling all the Kirbys into the hole, at which point they climb up into the bushel of leaves at its top and try to uproot it. Aghast and mortified, the tree awakens and tries to shake them off. Its efforts prove useless, however, as it is detached from its roots and topples over. Floaty becomes a raft for the Kirbys.
