This article is about the boss from Kirby: Squeak Squad, and should not be confused with Bobo.

Bohboh is the fifth boss of Kirby: Squeak Squad, faced in Vocal Volcano. It is a fiery owl-like creature with a raccoon-like tail. It can attack by dropping fire balls on Kirby. Its primary attack is to charge at Kirby with its talons. If it grabs Kirby, it throws Kirby to the fire hazard, making Kirby take damage and often immediately lose his ability due to the lava below him. It may also often fly into the background and appear on the other side of the stage.

If it misses its charging attack and hits the ground, it gets stunned. Meanwhile, rocks fall and can hurt Kirby, but they can be used to attack Bohboh. After recovering, Bohboh slowly rises, its eyes closed, which makes it vulnerable to attack. Once its eyes open, it resumes its attacking patterns.

If Bohboh charges and misses, but does not hit the ground, it simply flies off screen.

Once Bohboh is defeated, the large treasure chest Kirby receives is a Boss Battle Badge depicting it. If Kirby collects all boss battle badges, he can play a new mode: Boss Endurance.
