Kirby's Pinball Land sprite
|“||If Pinball Kirby hits Nimbus three times, it will start to rain and the Big Kirby will open his umbrella.”|
|— Kirby's Pinball Land instruction manual|
Nimbus is a wide cloud enemy with two eyes and a mouth.
Nimbus floats back and forth at the top of Kracko Land's middle stage, just above a large Kirby. If the player launches the pinball Kirby into Nimbus three times, the enemy is angered and floats over the large Kirby. Nimbus then releases a downpour. In turn, the large Kirby pulls out a parasol to block the rain; the player then has a limited time to land his/her Kirby on the parasol. If he/she succeeds, the large Kirby Circus Throws the pinball Kirby to the top stage.
Nimbus is named after the cloud of its same name, which is a precipitation cloud and casts thunder bolts.
