Haltworker is a small, bipedal creature with white hands and blue feet. It has a black face with yellow eyes. The enemy wears a white and brown costume with an elongated head, and carries a laser blaster.
Haltworker first appears in Stage 1 of Access Ark. It walks along the ground slowly, occasionally stopping to fire an electrical projectile from its blaster. Some Haltworkers run or stand in one spot. If Haltworker is positioned on a different plane from Kirby, the enemy fires across the gap to hit him. Its aim is sharper than usual when shooting across planes.
Haltworkers are most threatening when piloting Invader Armor.
Haltworker's name is a portmanteau of the words Haltmann, the name of the Haltman Works Company, and worker, describing the enemy's position as an employee.
