— Chief Bookem, from Hail to the Chief

Booma-Dooma Volcano is an active volcano in Dream Land situated a few miles away from Cappy Town in the anime series Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. It resembles a series of tall red cinder cones with gaping calderas filled with lakes of molten lava. As such, gouts of steam and ash are continuously pouring out of the volcano's five main openings. The volcano itself appears in only a handful of episodes, with its first appearance being in Episode 10: Hail to the Chief.

Appearances[edit]

Booma-Dooma Volcano first appears in the episode Hail to the Chief, when Tuff winds up getting stuck inside the main caldera near the end of the episode. Chief Bookem and the kids set out to save him, with the chief in particular rappelling down the inside of the caldera with a rope to retrieve him. Despite his efforts, Chief Bookem is unable to save Tuff on his own, and Kirby steps in to retrieve them on his Warp Star.

In Prediction Predicament - Part II, the Booma-Dooma Volcano erupts as the Phantom Star Gerath draws near, which drives the people of Cappy Town to evacuate and take refuge in Castle Dedede.

In Tourist Trap, the Booma-Dooma Volcano is the last stop on the tourists' trip through Dream Land, and is the site where Kirby has to battle the monster Flame Feeder.

In The Chill Factor, Ice Kirby pours hot sauce into the volcano to make it erupt, which neutralizes the effects of the Pengy tribe's iceberg.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the Japanese version, the volcano is called Gilauea, which is a reference to Kīlauea volcano in Hawaii.
