Bonehead 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.

Bonehead is a skull that lies on the ground. When Kirby approaches, it start to wobble about, then it sprouts wings. From here, it will attempt to charge or divebomb Kirby, falling back onto the ground and losing its wings once it hits a wall or the floor. If left alive, it will try to do this trick again.

Its name comes from the term "bonehead", meaning "a foolish person", while also referring to its resemblance to a skull.


Bonehead can be found in the following levels and stages:
