|“||Of little danger when just walking around, Pluggs can hurt Kirby only when they jump up and "plug" themselves into the ground, releasing a spark that zaps anyone standing too close. They're fairly slow-moving and Kirby can easily avoid them.”|

Plugg is an enemy resembling a walking electrical plug, who originated in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. Plugg gives the Spark ability when swallowed by Kirby, or the Plasma ability in Kirby Star Allies. It also serves as the Plasma ability's Helper in the latter game.
In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Plugg attacks by jumping into the air, flipping upside-down and "plugging" itself into the ground, which shoots two, blue, short, electrical currents (that end with electrical balls) across the ground from each side. When held above Kirby's head, Plugg does nothing. However, if Kirby throws a Plugg and it hits a wall it will stick to the wall for a short while.
In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Plugg resembles a light, sky blue outlet plug with round, black eyes, yellow prongs, and green feet. In Kirby Star Allies, it is redesigned with a more rounded, metallic and gray-colored body, orange feet, and a serrated opening on its top that leads to the prongs of the plug, which now continuously glows blue with electrical energy.
- Plugg and Snipper are the only enemies that debuted in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards to appear in another game.
