Degouts are enemies in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are a floating, gray robotic enemy who resembles a knight's helmet. They also have a large, glaring orange eye behind their grey armor. Degouts appear in Halcandra as the replacement for Mumbies. They appear in both Egg Engines and Dangerous Dinner. Degouts attack Kirby or one of his buddies (Meta Knight, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee) by slowly following them and trying to bump into them when their back is turned, just like a Mumbies would. However, unlike Mumbies, Degouts have a tremendous amount of health. A strong Copy Ability attack is recommended to help defeat these enemies since they have such tough armor. The heroes must be careful since Degouts follow the heroes if they survive the heroes' first attack on them. Much like with Mumbies and Scarfies, Kirby cannot Inhale a Degout. Red Degouts exist in the game as well. They are Degouts with red armor and a red eye. Red Degouts do not attack and follow Kirby and the heroes until they pick up a nearby Key. The Red Degouts will not stop pursuing the heroes holding the Key until they drop the Key or unlock a nearby door with it. Degouts appear in the Item challenge of the game. Even though Degouts appear in Halcandra, they appear in Pop Star during Extra Mode. It it to note that Degouts will open up their armor and reveal their eye each time they follow the heroes.
