Fire is an ability obtained by absorbing a fire type enemy, and it allows Kirby to exhale a powerful breath of fire. Kirby uses this ability while standing still, as opposed to the similar Burning ability, which is more based on moving than standing still. This is one of Kirby's oldest Copy Abilities, making its debut in Kirby's Adventure. When possessing the Fire ability, Kirby sports a golden tiara with a green jewel embedded in it. Bright orange flames emerge from the headgear, and Kirby's color slightly changes, making him more red than pink.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Fire first appears in Kirby's Adventure, the game which introduced Kirby's Copy Abilities, and also appears in its remake, Nightmare in Dream Land. Absorbing a Hot Head allows Kirby to breathe fire at his enemies.

Kirby Super Star/Kirby Super Star Ultra

In Kirby Super Star and the game's remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby can obtain the fire ability through Copy Pedestals, Copy Essence Deluxes or inhaling fiery enemies, notably Burning Leo. With the fire ability equipped, Kirby can create a Burning Leo as a Helper. These games did not feature the Fire ability's counterpart Burning, but instead included moves associated with Burning into the Fire ability. Therefore, Kirby is not only able to breathe fire at enemies, but to engulf himself in flames and charge forward as well.

Official Artwork for Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Fire reappears as an ability in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, where it is obtained by inhaling fiery enemies such as Hot Heads, Flamers, and Galbos. The Fire ability is required for some fuses to be lit to launch Kirby from a cannon to secret areas of the stage, which may provide an Energy Sphere. A super version of the Fire ability, called Monster Flame also exists, and can be obtained by inhaling a Super Hot Head.

Super Smash Bros. Trophy Information


When Kirby swallows a fire-wielding enemy, he transforms into Fire Kirby. Not only does he breathe fire in this form, but he can also sprout flames on his entire body and damage enemies by crashing into them. Fire Kirby wears the bright red headdress of his enemy Burning Leo. The hat turns into a helpful weapon when thrown.
