|“||Usually lying in wait with only their green tops showing, Mahalls pop up and fire bubbles at Kirby if he gets too close. Don't wait for them to pop out before attacking them—you can destroy them when they're just showing their tops.”|

Mahall is a tan blob with round black eyes and a green lid atop his head.
Mahall is a sneaky character that comes out of the ground as Kirby approaches, blows a bubble to attack, and quickly retreats into the ground. When underground, Mahall will explode upon contact, which will burn Kirby temporarily.
Mahall's name seems to be a corruption of the word manhole, describing the hole that it emerges from. It might also reference the word Mahal, a fine grade of Persian carpet.
