Kobils (コビル Kobiru) are enemies that appear in Kid Icarus. They are basic foot soldiers of Medusa's forces and are slow enough to be of no real threat to Pit.


A Kobil is a chubby, hunched-over devil with a single eye, claws and fangs, and a pair of vestigial wings. Unlike their Keepah cousins, though, Kobils are unarmed and cannot fly.


Kid Icarus

Pit will encounter both a blue and red variety of Kobil and they only appear in the Underworld's Fortress. They walk along platforms and turn around once the reach the edge of one or hit a wall. Blue variants are more common, but red variants are stronger.

"The little devils of Angel Land that are hostile towards angels. They cannot fly even though they have wings."
