Kaibādo (generically referred to by Nintendo Power as birds) are avian creatures fulfilling the role of enemies in Donkey Kong for the Game Boy. They appear as chubby birds and bear a strong resemblance to real world jays.
Kaibādo inhabit the Jungle of the said game; specifically, Stage 4-1. Each of these stages contains a nest that spawns an indefinite amount of Kaibādo, one at a time. After prevailing from within their nests, Kaibādo birds fly in a horizontal path across the screen, descending a short distance and sharply steering in the opposite direction after they encounter one of the screen's limits. Before they make their way outside the stage's boundaries and despawn, Kaibādo perform three complete flights across the screen. Sometimes, they briefly stop mid-air and attempt to drop an egg on Mario below. Should the egg hit Mario, he loses a life; on the other hand, it can be deflected and neutralized with a handstand. Kaibādo are also dangerous when coming in contact with Mario, but can be downed with falling fruit or an improvised, carriable projectile, such as a key.
Profiles and statistics
Tribe: Fly clan
Game appearances: GB Donkey
They often target and attack.
At first glance, it looks like a cute sparrow, but upon closer inspection, it has a rather scary face. They fly around from side to side and drop their eggs on Mario, so you must be careful. If it stops right above you, move to the left or right to avoid it.
