Ponpon moves at a normal pace in a straight line until it collides with a block, bomb, or other enemy, at which point it pauses, chooses a random direction, and then continues to move. It may choose to reverse directions even if it is not at a dead end. It will harm the player on collision.
When Ponpon lines up horizontally or vertically with a bomb, and there are no obstacles between them, it will move toward that bomb. Upon collision, it will then punch the bomb.
Upon defeat, Ponpon becomes a mechanical Egg. In Battle Mode, it can be found randomly in Eggs that are uncovered in Soft Blocks, but only after the password 0164 has been entered.
Players who ride Ponpon are able to use the Punch ability.
- "Pon" is a Japanese sound effect for hitting something.
