Faiachū are Fireball enemies with feet in Donkey Kong for Game Boy. They first appear in the Big-City in Stage 1-5. Faiachū circle around the area, and also walk up walls and ceilings. They defeat the player if they hit them. Faiachū also cannot be taken out by Trash Cans or a key. In the Iceberg world, Faiachū melt Ice Blocks as soon as they walk over them, clearing the path for the player allowing them to reach other areas of the level. A fast one appears in Stage 7-11.
