Explosive Coconuts are dangerous obstacles in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are coconuts that grow on palm trees. These coconuts will fall from their trees if Kirby (or Meta Knight, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee) stand underneath them or pass them. The coconuts will explode on impact with anything, hence the name. If the heroes get hit by a falling Explosive Coconut, they will take damage and most likely lose the Copy Ability they currently had. Explosive Coconuts appear in Stage 1 of Onion Ocean. Giant versions of Explosive Coconuts also appear however, they behave no different from their smaller relatives. In this stage, the Parasol is a good Copy Ability to use, for it protects the player from being hit by the falling Explosive Coconuts. Bonkers is the only midboss that uses Explosive Coconuts as part of his attacks. In this game he usually throws one Coconut at a time. Explosive Coconuts can be Inhaled but, obviously, no reward is granted for Inhaling them.
