|“||These unusual creatures can store energy in the form of electricity, which is a pretty amazing thing. But all they do is creep around aimlessly, and that is a complete waste of time and energy.”|
|— Figurine description • Kirby and the Rainbow Curse|
Shockcreepa is a tall, limbless purple blob. It has a yellow mouth and eyes. It emits a purple gas and sparks as it moves.
Shockcreepa appears exclusively in the stage Infiltrate the Junk Factory!. When Kirby enters its room, the enemy forms out of the ground and begins steadily creeping in one direction. When it reaches the edge or corner of its platform, it continues on its way by slinking up or down it; Shockcreepa is capable of moving across floors, walls, and ceilings. The player must take advantage of its constant roaming in the stage, allowing it to pass through Sensor Fields to open gates.
Shockcreepa is indestructible by normal means, as Kirby's Tap Dash and Star Dash attacks cause the hero to get zapped by its electricity. He can only defeat it when under the effects of Invincibility Candy, but he will return in a little space of time.
Shockcreepa's name is derived from the words shock and creep, referencing the enemy's electrical abilities and movement.
