Bang-Bang is a type of enemy appearing in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror and Canvas Curse. It resembles a gray and red rocket with a yellow nose, white wings, a pair of angry-looking eyes and, while on the ground, two yellow feet. Bang-Bang gives out the Missile Copy Ability in both of its appearances. In English, Bang-bangs are named such since they explode. Their Japanese name comes from Dokkōn, which is a Japanese onomatopoeia for "Kaboom!".

Game appearances

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror

In their first appearance, Bang-Bangs initially walk on the ground, waiting for Kirby to come near. Once he does, they momentarily stop and, after a few seconds of aiming, proceed to attack by launching themselves at him, losing their feet in the process. While airborne, Bang-Bangs relentlessly home in on Kirby; however, they have bad deceleration and cannot turn around very fast, which can be exploited to cause them to miss their target.

After traveling through the air for a set amount of time, Bang-Bangs begin to flash red and eventually self-destruct, harming Kirby if he is caught in the blast. Smashing into an obstacle or directly hitting Kirby himself likewise causes them to explode. Bang-Bangs have low health and can be destroyed by any attack.

Kirby: Canvas Curse

In Canvas Curse, Bang-Bangs appear in some levels, going towards Kirby. As they never walk in this game, their feet are not seen. Other than that, however, their appearance here is otherwise very similar to the way they appear in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror.
