Shotzos are enemies that appear in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are small black cannons that fire spherical bullets. Shotzos have leg-like structures on them, however, they are usually immobile and cling to one surface. Shotzos attack in three different ways. Some Shotzos aim at Kirby and the heroes and try to shoot their spherical bullets at them. Some Shotzos will only start shooting spherical bullets when the heroes get near them. The last type of attack found in Shotzos is where they just fire three spherical bullets every few seconds. Much like with Gordos, Shotzos cannot be defeated unless forced off the stage. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, there are enemies who appear to be similar (or a sub-species of Shotzos). These include Coldtzos, Gigatzos, and Volttzos. There is also a similar enemy to a Shotzo in Kirby's Epic Yarn known as a Freezo. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, if Kirby uses a Super Ability on any indestructible enemy, the enemy will not disappear at first. However, if he had to walk away from the enemy and come back it will be gone. Kirby can test this out with Shotzos using the Ultra Sword or Grand Hammer. Shotzos also appear in the Sword and Item challenges in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.
