|— Daroach • Kirby Mass Attack|
Soarar is a yellow dart enemy with big blue eyes. It is limbless and has no mouth or nose.
This is Soarar's first appearance. They fly back and forth in a particular area. They do not aim for Kirby, however, and are more of a nuisance than an enemy. They shoot pink blasts aimlessly straight forward and then turn with a sharp screeching sound. The blasts travel for an infinite distance.
In this game, Soarar is technically unchanged, but this time around, their ability to fire lasers is rarely used. They can be summoned by Drawcia in the battle against her. Kirby: Canvas Curse marks the first time Soarar has appeared outside of the Mirror World.
In this game, Soarar changed completely. They are found in some of the fruit fetching games, where they carry cards with pictures of either fruit or a Soarar. If Kirby manages to grab a fruit card, he'll be rewarded with fruit, but if Kirby were to grab a Soarar card, the background will turn red and a variety of Soarars will come to attack Kirby by darting down on him, thus, posing as a threat in the game. Soarar also appears outside the fruit fetching games as a common enemy, starting at Stage 7 of Green Grounds. A Colossal Soarar and Baby Soarars are also found in this game.
In this game, Soarars act as they do in Kirby: Canvas Curse--they aimlessly glide back and forth through the sky. They have lost their ability to fire lasers completely. Like many other enemies in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Soarars have gained the ability to cross between the background and foreground of certain stages. These enemies appear in the Main Mode and Stages 2, 3, and 4 of Dedede's Drum Dash. They also appear in the downloadable Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe.
Soarar retains its behavior in Kirby: Planet Robobot.
Soarar first appears in Stage 1 of Level 4. It flies through the air, often in a line or flock, not trying to cause Kirby any trouble. Like most enemies in the game, scaled-up versions of it appear that can be Inhaled for a Blaster Bullet.
Soarar's name most likely diverges from the word soar, as a reference to its movement. It may also come from the Japanese word for sky, sora.
- During Paint Panic, a Soarar may sometimes appear as one of Paint Roller's paintings.
- In Kirby Mass Attack, Daroach says that Soarars are attracted to shiny things, such as medals.
