Glunk is a common enemy in the Kirby series that is, in appearance, based off of a sea anemone. It stays in place most of the time but sometimes fires projectiles or water into the air. Glunk gives no Copy Ability, because it is usually found underwater; however, Glunks may also occasionally be found out of water. They are commonly found in narrow underwater tunnels.
Glunk is one of the few enemies tolerable to water.
In Kirby's Blowout Blast, Glunk cannot fire projectiles.
- In Kirby's Dream Land, Kirby's Dream Land 2 and Kirby's Dream Land 3, Glunks may be found attached to ceilings. In Kirby's Dream Land, they will fall from ceilings after Kirby approaches them.
- In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, four Glunks appear in a mid-boss battle against a giant Blowfish in the fourth stage of Aqua Star.
- In Kirby: Canvas Curse, Glunk is drawn in Paint Panic.
- Glunk's name is an onomatopoeia for the sound of an object sinking to the bottom of a body of water.
- Glunks vaguely resemble bubble-tip anemones, as they are both orange or green. The bubble-tipped tentacles of said creature may also be the inspiration for Glunk's form of attack.
- In the The Legendary Starfy series, there appears an enemy of the same name that features similarities to the enemy of the Kirby games (such as having a comparable color and stature). Despite the two enemies' similarities, however, they do not bear any other resemblances to one another whatsoever.
- In Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, it is possible to inhale a Glunk's projectiles and use them as ammunition.
- Both the Prima and BradyGames strategy guides for Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards are flawed; the Prima guide describes Glunk as a plant-like creature, while the BradyGames guide describes Glunk as an urchin.
- In Kirby Super Star, Glunk's projectiles can be reflected with the Mirror ability.
