Labotory is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby: Planet Robobot. It is a citizen from a foreign planet that was hired by the Haltmann Works Company to research and create technology in research facilities. It yields no Copy Ability when inhaled.
Labotory is a round, mechanical gray enemy with stubby arms and green feet. Its body shape is identical to Kirby's and Waddle Dee's. The enemy's face is adorned with a porthole and a hatch for a mouth. Labotory holds a flail in its right hand.
Labotory first appears in Stage 4 of Patched Plains and reappears in many stages thereafter. It walks back and forth across the ground, occasionally stopping to launch its flail forward. Some Labotories remain stationary, swinging their arms before swing their flails.
The enemy's name is a corruption of the word "laboratory," emphasizing "bot" in the middle of its name as reference to its mechanical appearance.
