Giant Schnoz is a large enemy in Kirby Mass Attack.


Giant Schnoz, like Schnoz and Big Schnoz, is a large, bipedal creature. Unlike its smaller cousins, however, Giant Schnoz is green, not purple or red. It has large fangs sticking out of its mouth, with the points worn flat from unseen use. It also has a big, green, round nose protruding from its face. It paws the ground like a rhinoceros before charging at the door, which kinks its nose somewhat. Unlike its relatives, Giant Schnoz has a large, green tail with a spiked ring on the end.


Giant Schnoz appears only in Stage 5 of Green Grounds. It is different from the other Schnozes in that it pushes the end door instead of a Heave Ho Block. The beast slowly nudges the door away from the Kirbys, and occasionally charges up and swings its tail wildly.

When the creature is pushing the door, the ring on its tail is bare, and thus can be grabbed by the Kirbys. When they latch on, the player will have to rapidly tap a button in order to defeat the beast. If he/she fails, the Kirbys will be launched into the left wall at the beginning of the room, and spiky balls will fall from the trees. No matter how far Giant Schnoz gets with the door, failing to beat the button will reset his position to the beginning.

If the player succeeds when tapping the button, Giant Schnoz will be launched off the screen by the Kirbys, but not before the creature gives one last grunt.

On a side note, nothing actually happens if Giant Schnoz reaches the end of the passage with the door. It won't be able to go any further, but the beast will still try its best to nudge it some more.
