Cave Story's equivalent to a Thwomp: some kind of living block that will try to crush you under its weight. The crush would kill Quote in Cave Story regardless of his HP, but after falling the Press would be unable to rise back up and would be left completely vulnerable; I've tried to recreate that scenario here: the Press's basic attack, while technically dealing 0 damage, inflicts the Instant Death status (which kills instantly but can be blocked by things like Safeguard), but it only gets to do this the first time it attacks, and subsequently can't do anything at all, remaining on the ground where it's vulnerable to all attacks. Presses have a single red eye with a distinct appearance seen on some other machine-like Cave Story enemies, and a giant version of them called the Heavy Press exists as a boss.
