Burning Leo, originally named Burnin' Leo, is an enemy in the Kirby series. He debuted in Kirby Super Star and reappeared in Kirby Super Star Ultra. In both games, he will give Kirby the Fire ability if swallowed.

Burning Leo will also appear for the first time in 3D in Kirby for Nintendo Switch, and will be recruitable as a Helper in that game.


Burning Leo's size is similar to that of Kirby's. He wears a green headband with many flames coming out of it resembling hair. The headband also has a circular red gem on the middle of it. Burning Leo wears small green shoes, much like Kirby. His mouth only appears when he exhales fire.

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, a green-colored Burning Leo with purple shoes is seen in Helper to Hero as a playable character along with the other helpers.

Special Abilities

Burning Leo has many special abilities. His most notable one is exhale powerful blasts of Fire from his mouth. In Kirby Super Star and its remake, Burning Leo, as a helper, has the same moveset as Fire Kirby.
