Gate squid is a white and periwinkle giant squid. It has black eyes, six arms, and a lip-like muzzle around its mouth.
Gate Squid appears exclusively in Stage 1 of Sandy Canyon and Stage 5 of Dedede Resort. When it sees the Kirbys, it quickly slips into a narrow vertical passage, blocking it. It puts its arms together and juts them out. Sometimes it forms them into a mace shape and swings them back and forth. More often, it forms its arms into two harpoons and one ring. The Kirbys need to avoid the harpoon arms and grab the ring-shaped ones, then the player must rapidly tap the Kirby button on the screen. If successful, the heroes yank Gate Squid out of its chute, defeating it.
