Flowery Woods is a boss in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It bears a strikingly similar appearance to Whispy Woods, only with a green trunk at the base of which flowers bloom, a small flower blooming from the tip of its nose, and large, razor-sharp blossoms blooming from star-shaped clusters of smaller flowers that replace the expected apples and leaves, respectively. Flowery Woods is the boss of Triple Deluxe's first Level, Fine Fields, and it is also battled in The Arena and in Stage 4 of Royal Road.

Battle

Flowery Woods starts off with only two attacks, and the battle is markedly similar to the one with Whispy Woods in the early games. Once Flowery is down to half-health however, it jumps into the background and unleashes a great deal of new attacks, much more than Whispy had, even in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

When re-fought in Royal Road, it may also perform its Trunk Stomp before the second phase.

Flowery Woods uses the first attack of Combo Root in the second phase.

The following lists all of Flowery Woods' attacks in Story Mode and The Arena in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Attacks in italics are used in the second phase of the fight only.

Attacks - Normal
Attack Description
Pollen Drop
Flowery drops two to three big grains of pollen from its flowers that bounce along the ground. These can be inhaled and spat back at the boss.
Puff Attack
Flowery spits two to four puffs of air that travel a short distance then rise up or down. In the second phase, this attack is done from the background and Flowery fires up to six at a time.
Giant Pollen Drop
While in the background, Flowery drops four to six giant pollen boulders that bounce into the foreground in a semi-erratic manner. These can still be inhaled.
Root Spike
While in the background, Flowery digs its roots into the ground, which spring out of the ground as spikes, one at a time, up to five. Attacking them deals damage. Each one leaves a star when it retracts.
Trunk Stomp
From the background, Flowery uproots and jumps into the air, then moves into the foreground, grows somewhat in size, and attempts to stomp Kirby. This creates stars on both sides of the tree on impact. Flowery may attempt multiple jumps in one go.
Blossom Cutters
While in the background, Flowery sends its four blossoms out as spinning rotary blades that move into the foreground. These can be inhaled, or swallowed for the Cutter Ability.
Combo Root
While in the background, Flowery digs its roots into the ground, which spring out just before the foreground and curl into place both left and right of center stage, leaving stars as they retract. Flowery then jumps to a side and extends its roots again to cover the majority of the stage with roots (only leaving the side it is on exposed), following that with the same maneuver on the other side. Flowery then finishes by creating two giant roots that slam down on the left and right edges of the stage, then move together in an attempt to squish anything in the middle. The roots can be attacked to deal damage.
Trunk Stomp + Root Spike
From the background, Flowery uproots and jumps into the air, then moves into the foreground and attempts to stomp Kirby. This creates stars on both sides of the tree on impact. After this, Flowery digs its roots into the ground and tries to spike Kirby with them. The root spike is done twice before returning to the background.
Trunk Stomp + Puff Attack
From the background, Flowery uproots and jumps into the air, then moves into the foreground and attempts to stomp Kirby. This creates stars on both sides of the tree on impact. After this, Flowery attempts to use its puff attack on Kirby, banking on the reduced space offered to avoid the attack.

Whenever Flowery Woods is in the background, it cannot be damaged directly. However, Kirby can attack its roots (in any of their forms) whenever they are present in the foreground, which damages the boss as if it were being hit directly. Objects that can be inhaled and spat out at Flowery Woods (or its roots) in the second phase of battle are the pollen boulders, the razor-sharp blossoms themselves (which can instead be swallowed to gain the Cutter ability), and the Stars that appear following the majority of Flowery Woods' attacks.

KirbyBuilding.png This article or section is under construction. Therefore, please excuse its informal appearance while it's being worked on. We hope to have it completed as soon as possible.

A more powerful version of this boss, Flowery Woods DX, is battled at the end of Lv. 1 of Dededetour! and in The True Arena. Flowery Woods DX is generally darker than the first Flowery Woods, with a dark red trunk, purple roots, and darker leaves. Te large clumps of leaves are now more diamond shaped, instead of stars, and the flowers on Flowery Woods DX's trunk and treetop have pointed petals, instead of the curved ones of the previous incarnation.

Trivia

  • According to Flowery Woods DX's pause-screen description, Flowery Woods' relation to Whispy Woods is unknown.
  • Flowery Woods makes a brief appearance in Stage 5 of Royal Road, but unfortunately for it, Kirby is in possession of the Hypernova ability, and poor Flowery is sucked in (along with its life meter) in one fell swoop.
