Warwiggle is a worm-like foe with several rectangular body segments. It has a bubble-like neck and a gray spiked helmet. Each body segment contains fruit and occasionally bombs, a key, or a medal.
Warwiggle attacks by emerging from the dirt, in an attempt to stab Kirby. In order to defeat the enemy, the player must flick the Kirbys into it until all of the fruits it holds fly out. However, if Kirby hits its neck, the worm will be defeated instantly—spitting out all of the items its body contained in the process. A bigger version of Warwiggle called Big Warwiggle appears in the game, serving as a mid-boss.
