Paint Slimes are rare enemies appearing in Kirby Super Star, its remake, and Kirby Mass Attack. They are launched by Heavy Lobster in one of its attacks, and grant Kirby the rare Paint ability when inhaled.
Paint Slimes, when released, generally do nothing except hop around the stage. In the Kirby Brawlball sub-game of Kirby Mass Attack, when a Kirby bumps into a Paint Slime, it does nothing but splatter on the screen.
- In Kirby Super Star Ultra's The Arena and Helper to Hero sub-games, a Paint Slime assembly line can be seen in the background during the battle with Heavy Lobster.
