— Pause screen caption for Birdon, Kirby Star Allies
Birdon is a flying fashionable bird enemy found in a handful of Kirby games. It is a small multicolored bird with an aviator's cap and goggles on its back. While it can come in many colors, it is most often seen with a magenta body, green and yellow fringes on the wings, and an orange tuft of hair with orange feet. Its eyes are very large and round, and its beak is bright yellow.
Birdon flies around, shooting feathers at Kirby and occasionally trying to ram him. In its helper form, it has all the abilities of Wing Kirby. When Kirby swallows it or scans it with the Copy ability, he receives the Wing ability. It is very rare to see a Birdon attacking from the ground.
Kirby Super Star (Ultra)
Birdon makes its first appearance in these games, serving as the only enemy-based source for the exotic Wing ability. In these games, Birdon is fairly uncommon, nor is it particularly dangerous toward Kirby. Birdon is typically seen flying at a modest pace in a straight line, and it can shoot out feathers to attack. When made into a helper, Birdon has all the same abilities as Wing Kirby, though it is significantly less durable than the pink puffball.
Birdon can be found in the following places in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra:

Kirby: Triple Deluxe
Birdon returns after a long absence and making its debut in 3-D in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, first appearing in the EX stage of Fine Fields. It once again provides the Wing ability and is typically seen flying back and forth and shoots feathers, much like Owgulf does.
Kirby Star Allies
- Birdon looks similar to a miniature, more organic looking Dyna Blade. However, Dyna Blade's chicks do not resemble Birdon, being more realistic and yellow, and they are larger than Kirby, while Birdon is the same size as Kirby. It is similar to Bronto Burt in being small, mostly round except for wings, and almost always being found flying.
- The name Birdon is a wordplay on the word burden, as the two have the same phonetic pronunciation.
