These giant blocks drop down on you from above, so they're pretty nasty. However, their eyes and mouths open really wide right before they take that plunge, so maybe they're as surprised as you when they fall down!
— Figurine description • Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Grindarr is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack.

Physical Appearance

Grindarrs are rectangular, stone blocks that hang from a long, silver chain. They have no hands, but have feet with three digits on each. They have a pair of vigilant eyes, a small nose, and a large oblong mouth. They come in a brown, cracked variant and a solid, gray variant. The gray variant is the most common.

The rarest variant is called Mega Grindarr. It is roughly twice the size of a normal Grindarr and has a large tongue. It is gray in color.

Games

Kirby Mass Attack

Grindarr is most commonly found in Sandy Canyon, though it is also found in Volcano Valley. It attacks by attempting to crush the Kirbys from above. However, a Grindarr will only attempt this if they are nearby, which is noted by a grunting noise. After it touches the ground, it will slowly rise up and wait for another attack. If any Kirbys are crushed, they are instantly KO'd.

A single Mega Grindarr appears in Stage 10 of Sandy Canyon. When pulled out of the ground, sand begins to rise rapidly in the ruins.

Gray Grindarr and Mega Grindarr are invincible but the brown Grindarrs can be defeated. A few hits from the Kirbys will destroy them, revealing fruit or a chain that can be pulled on.

Two brown Grindarrs also appear in the Kirby Quest sub-game. They are fought in Stage 16 of Chapter 2.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Gray Grindarr and Mega Grindarr appear in this game. They do not connect to chains nor do they look down before dropping. A dusty yellow coloration of Grindarr appears exclusively as a scenery decoration in Yellow Dunes.

Trivia

  • Grindarrs are very similar — in both appearance and in attack patterns — to Thwomp from the Super Mario series.
  • The European Kirby Mass Attack website mistakenly calls this enemy 'Gobchomplin.'

If you hear a rumble in the ruins, you're probably near a Grindarr. Those things will squash you flat if you stop under them. So don't do that.
