Bio Spark (also spelled Biospark) is a common enemy in the Kirby series, first appearing in Kirby Super Star. Bio Spark is a ninja-like figure, who wears a cloak with a plume on the helmet. Although glimpses of his gloved hands and covered feet are shown, his only actual body parts seen are his glowing eyes, and he has no arms at all, similar to Blade Knight and Sir Kibble. Bio Spark usually wears black or purple, but is also seen wearing green.

General behavior

Bio Spark the enemy can do many things usually attributed to a ninja, including:

  • Throwing kunai knives when Kirby is far away;
  • Slicing rapidly with a blade when Kirby gets too close;
  • Hiding in the shadows;
  • Grabbing his foe, jumping up, and flinging them to the ground (known as Air Drop).

Bio Spark provides the Ninja Copy Ability when swallowed by Kirby.

Bio Spark debuted in Kirby Super Star. In this title and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra, he can become Kirby's Helper and perform all of the same moves as Ninja Kirby, including wall jumps. Bio Spark also gains access to the coveted Infinity Jump, which allows him to really show off his Ninja moves without being inhibited by a Hovering technique. However, Bio Spark suffers from reduced stamina when compared to Kirby.

In the remake's Helper to Hero mode, Bio Spark is one of the playable characters. In this mode, he wears a red cloak.

Kirby Squeak Squad

In Kirby Squeak Squad, Bio Spark often hides behind a sheet, making him both hard to see and invincible. When Kirby gets within a certain distance of Bio Spark, he lifts the sheet and attacks, which makes him vulnerable to being attacked or swallowed for the Ninja ability.

When possessed by Kirby's Ghost ability, Bio Spark can use the following moves (facing right):

  • B: Knife throw
  • →+B: Blade multislash
  • ↑: Hide
  • When touching a common enemy in midair: Air Drop

While not appearing in the main game, Bio Spark cameos as an obstacle in the Sub-Game Kirby Brawlball. He occupies a small part of the board and will swipe at any Kirby ball that gets near. He is worth 100 points each time he is hit.

Kirby Star Allies

Bio Spark makes his first 3D appearance in Kirby Star Allies, where he provides the Ninja ability as usual, as well as being recruitable as a Friend. Once recruited, Bio Spark can perform all of the same moves as Ninja Kirby, and can also have his blade augmented by elemental powers.

Bio Spark the Friend has lower health than Kirby and his health (tied with NESP) is below average - even lower than many other Friend Helpers, and just slightly higher than Adeleine & Ribbon.
