Game appearances

Kirby's Dream Land

Mumbies makes its first appearance in this game, first appearing in Castle Lololo. Many of them appear alongside Boolers and Flappers. In order to defeat them, Kirby must attack them by either puffing in air, or use the Superspicy Curry to fire pellets at them.

In the Extra Game mode, Mumbies are simply replaced with Skullers.

Kirby's Pinball Land

Mumbies (referred to as Mummy Ball)[1] appears in Kirby's Pinball Land in the lower-most board of Wispy-Woods Land. Defeating it awards 360 points, and once its bumped into 8 consecutive times, it is defeated, and awards the player multiple times the original score, revealing the Warp Star, allowing Kirby to go back to the level hub.
