"For me, a sweet tooth is fiendishly uncouth!"
—Kernel Von Pop, Death Screen
Kernel is a large anthropomorphic candy corn with glaring yellow eyes and a wide toothy mouth sporting triangular-shaped teeth.
Kernel Von Pop possess a much snooty and arrogant attitude, suggested in his death screen.
He flies around the arena in a horizontal figure 8, randomly choosing to go straight ahead or travel vertically in the middle, and summons smaller and inverted clones of himself that fly upwards. In Simple mode, the smaller versions of himself won't be summoned. In Expert mode, they are summoned at a faster rate. Hitpoints = 10/10
When defeated, he floats up with his mouth (even the top of his head) separated akin to the same animation as the smaller candy corns.
- Kernal's name is unofficial, along with the names for Baroness' other subjects. It was revealed as merely a pet name given by Tina Nawrocki when asked by a fan.
- Kernel Von Pop's name refers to popcorn which is ironic seeing as Kernel Von Pop himself is actually candy corn.
