Bo is an enemy from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It is first encountered in Stage 3 of Rock Star. It does not yield a Copy Ability if swallowed. Bo is a black orb of smoke with white eyes. It moves about slowly through the air, and will harm Kirby if he makes contact with it. Bo appears to move randomly in short bursts, but does seem to seek Kirby at least somewhat, eventually coming into contact with him if he holds still for a long time. Bo can typically be found in small groups, appearing like a swarm of bugs, though not acting in unison. If Kirby attempts to hold Bo above his head, it will instantly dissipate.


Bo can be found in the following levels and stages:

  • Bo is extremely similar in look to the Black Boe from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Both that game and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards shared a release year (2000), so it is possible the enemy was developed for one game, then borrowed for the other.
