Faiachū are Fireball enemies 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, essentially acting as a damaging Rappy. They defeat the player if they hit them. Faiachū also cannot be taken out by Trash Cans. 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.
