Digging up from the ground, Mites are noticeable when they start to break through the surface of the earth in front of Kirby. Avoid them with a quick jump.

Mite is a yellowish orange mole-like enemy in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. He has a round body with round black eyes, what appears to be a white beak, and long arms and legs with sharp, triangular claws. Mite is often seen digging out of the ground and just running around everywhere pretty fast before digging back underground. He gives no ability when inhaled. If Mite is held above Kirby's head he will flail around, but when he is thrown he will fall down and burrow underground unharmed.
