Skud is an exploding enemy that only appears in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
Skud looks like a white rocket with a red top and feet and a happy face (not to be confused with Bang-Bang or Pedo). When he launches, his eyes and mouth disappear and his feet become wings. Skud also somewhat resembles Tick.
Skud makes his only appearance in a Kirby title in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. When Kirby comes forward near it, Skud launches itself upward and sails through the air towards Kirby and plummets in Kirby's direction with poor aim. When inhaled, Skud grants the Bomb ability.
Skud's name is a reference to the Scud missiles developed by the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
- Bang-Bang's movement and attack pattern are almost exactly derived from Skud.
