Snoozroot is an enemy that appears only in Kirby Mass Attack. They can be found mostly in Green Grounds and Sandy Canyon, with occasional appearances elsewhere.

Appearance

Snoozroot is a plant-like enemy that has a bead-like body and a round head, yellow rose cheeks, and a red bow on its head. They have four variations: Snoozroot, Sand Snoozroot, Puke Snoozroot, and Fire Snoozroot.

Games

Kirby Mass Attack

Snoozroot's behavior depends on its color. They are mostly found asleep, but when approached, they will wake up and prepare to attack.

Normal Snoozroots, the green ones, attack by spitting out purple liquids at Kirby, similar to those launched by Mummbon. This Snoozroot appears in Green Grounds.

Puke Snoozroots, the purple ones, attack slightly different. Their heads will begin to grow larger, and turn red. Then, they spit out three purple liquids accompanied by propellers. Puke Snoozroots only appear in Stage 2 of Green Grounds.

Sand Snoozroots, the orange ones, launch sand, which covers up the entire screen for a while, making it hard to see. It is to the player's advantage to defeat them before they launch dust. When defeated, the dust will immediately clear up. They often fight alongside Gegs, making it harder to distinguish them. This Snoozroot can be found in Sandy Canyon.

Fire Snoozroots, the red ones, appear in Volcano Valley, which shoot small balls of fire.

Etymology

Snoozroot's name comes from the words snooze, which refers to its habit of sleeping, and root, which refers to the fact that it's a plant.

You know those little plants that are always dozing off? They're Snoozroots. Probably best to mess with them only when they're sleeping.
