Kirby: Squeak Squad artwork
Foley is a yellow, plant-like enemy that was introduced in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and afterwards appeared in Kirby: Squeak Squad, Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, and Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Foley uses two leaves growing out of its head that act as helicopter blades, keeping it afloat. Foleys are usually stationary, but some will occasionally fly from side to side. If Kirby gets too close or walks under it, Foley will discard its leaves and fall, exploding upon touching a floor or whatever it comes in contact with. If Kirby inhales one, he gets the Bomb Copy Ability. Its behavior can be compared to the exploding coconuts that appear in other games as well as games alongside it.
Foley's name comes from the word foliage, which are the leaves of a plant.
