Nintober 015. Scarfy

Nintober 2011 - 1 Nintendo monster for every day in October.

015. Scarfy
I don't care what you say. Every time I see a Scarfy, a little part of me shrieks like a little girl. They're not as scary in the first couple of games, but then on SNES they turned into the stuff of nightmares!

Scarfy suggested by me.

In some stages of Super Star Ultra, they'll transform even if Kirby doesn't doesn't try to eat/attack them! But they're just like real cats, really cute from afar, but get close and they want to kill you.

For some reason, the monster look kind of reminds me of the Polar Peak monster from Fortnite.

That's how Scarfys become Cyclops before they explode!

They're always terrifying. Especially if you didn't mean to try and suck one in. Then it's scream and run away time!

What's worse, in Triple Deluxe, some of them can change automatically.  Those things are definitely among the creepier opponents you find.

When I saw the pixel sprite for his cyclops form on the DS, it didn't scare me. I got Kirby 64 last week, and when I turned around, Scarfy transformed and that N64 sprite scared the shit out of me! XD It was freaky. Oh, and when they land on the ground in Kirby 64, they move towards Kirby like they're stalking him. XDDDD

I think there are more Dreamland natives that are as creepy as scarfy, but I can't remember.
fryguy64's avatar
If you can remember, I'd like to hear! Maybe I could fill some extra gaps later in this Nintober project :)

Nice. I think in the original Gameboy version, its eyes didn't fuse when enraged. Regardless.....see a scarfy, use some air, or (from Adventure and beyond) a weapon. You forgot to mention another important thing....when enraged, their temper is literally EXPLOSIVE...keep your distance!

The exploding is mentioned in the description next to the pic: "...with a final blast of uncontrollable rage, Scarfy explodes..." :)

This suddenly-scare-you-off thing reminds me of Adventure of Lolo, where you can get an instant death when aligned with a certain enemy. I'd call this one of those pre-Kirby era leftovers (specifically, the style that carried to Kirby 1) that shouldn't have made it to the later games.

It's only worse in the hi-res 3D Kirby Air Ride, although you get to go pass it quickly in that one.

Those damned Medusa heads in Adventure of Lolo! Gah! Hate them!!

The Kirby games have some pretty nightmarish creatures, but they're almost always final bosses, and always alien in nature. I tried to get this across in its description.
Raakone's avatar
fitting someone's seeing a Lolo the Lolo games were done by HAL before they became more closely integrated with Nintendo. And Lolo and Lala appear as bosses in the first Kirby game (except their choice of weapon, Emerald Framer, leaves much to be desired....although at least Lolo later started chucking Gordos as well)
fryguy64's avatar
Aye, quite a lot of Lolo enemies made it into the later Kirby games too.
Beau-Skunk's avatar
Oh yeah, I remember those things. They had an interesting morph animation in Kirby 64 to.

I only recently beat that game. Still need to go back and finish it totally though!
