Living in clouds, ice fields, and other places with hidey-holes, Maws pop out and try to chew up Kirby, just like Gloms do. Lure them out of hiding before passing or destroying them.
— Description • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards Official Strategy Guide (Prima)

Maw is an enemy from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It uses its large mouth to attack. Maw mostly hangs out in cloudy areas and is hard to hit regularly. However, it can be taken out, usually with an attack that does a wide area of damage (like Dynamite or Super Electric Energy Field). It waits in holes in the ground or on the ceiling and lunges out when Kirby is near. It can only be defeated when it comes out of its hole (unless the player has good sight and an ability like Flaming Arrow).

Physical Appearance

Maw resembles a long blue crocodile-like mouth with sharp, white teeth with large eyes positioned on either side of its head. Its name comes from the word maw, which means the jaws or throat of a voracious animal. It heavily resembles Pacto, an enemy introduced in Kirby's Dream Land 3.
