Puffton appears as a large male periwinkle owl. The Puffton has yellow eyes, white eyebrows, a blue beak, a white mustache with hair ties, white chest, and periwinkle talons in shade. Puffton wears a belt with a Snowmad insignia and a strap on his right.
In the game, Pufftons are like the regular Hootzes as they fly whether horizontally, vertically, or stay put airborne. Due to their size, it will take three hits to defeat a Puffton. They can however be easily defeated by a barrel, by Rambi, or even a roll attack.
