In addition to appearing as a boss in numerous games, Sweet Stuff also had a cameo in the Kirby of the Stars Pilot before making his latest appearance on Ado's collectible Keychain in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
Sweet Stuff debuts as the boss of Ripple Field, the third world in Kirby's Dream Land 2.
The battle takes place in a deep sea trench, with the screen scrolling horizontally. It swims around accompanied by Squishies and small one-eyed starfish called Tincells. These foes can be blown back at it to deal damage. Sweet Stuff can also fire sparks and arrow-shaped lasers from Its lure.
Because this fight takes place in a cloudy arena devoid of water, Sweet Stuff bounces around instead of swimming. Sweet Stuff can still fire sparks and Tincells. After Kirby depletes the painting's health, it explodes and Ado paints Mr. Shine & Mr. Bright to take its place.
It has a total of 500 HP and gives 1400 exp when beaten. If Kirby misses during any of his turns, Sweet Stuff will counterattack by shooting bolts of electricity. If the other foes are still there, they will join the counterattack and rush at Kirby. This is a direct callback to its attack pattern in Kirby's Dream Land 2.
