— Bronto Burt (Kirby's Avalanche)
Bronto Burt, originally named Bront Burt, is a generally reoccurring enemy that is quite common to the many stages and realms of many Kirby games. Throughout their appearances, their behavior have stayed relatively unchanged. Bronto Burts are often found in sky-theme levels, but they can occur anywhere. They attack generally by colliding into Kirby, although their attack patterns vary. Some fly in a set wavy pattern, others follow Kirby, and others appear by diving and looping before flying in a set pattern.
Bronto Burts can be described as being small and round with two pairs semi-transparent, insect-like wings, tiny orange feet, large eyes with long eyebrows, and an emotionless mouth. In later appearances, they have blush marks similar to how Kirby has them. The Bronto Burts in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards differ slightly from their usual appearances, having one pair of wings, much thicker eyebrows, darker pupils, and no mouths. Bronto Burts also share color variants, as seen in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, although they are only aesthetic. These color variants are not as common as the pink variation.
According to its Brawl trophy, it does not serve Dedede, and it divebombs from time to time, hurting Kirby only because he is in the way.

Kirby's Dream Land
Bronto Burts make their first appearance in Kirby's Dream Land. In this game, they are a relatively common airborne enemy. Their attack patterns involve flying in the air, falling and looping, following Kirby, or jumping followed by flying straight. With all enemies in this game, they can be defeated in one hit or by getting inhaled. If they are defeated, they give Kirby 400 points. Twizzy enemies act in a similar manner as Bronto Burts.

Bronto Burts appear again in Kirby Super Star and its remake as a common airborne enemy. They have low HP compared to most enemies in the game, which makes them easier to defeat.

In Kirby Card Swipe Bronto Burts are one of the various Kirby enemies that can appear on the card.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
Bronto Burts make another appearance in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. In this game, it retains its usual attacks, but it can also charge at Kirby from the background of the stage. These enemies are among the most basic in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, appearing inside every realm except for Dark Star where only N-Zs exist. The Bronto Burts take one strike to be defeated. Lifting a Bronto Burt after inhaling it will make it flap its wings, propelling Kirby into the air for a short while.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land
Bronto Burts make a return in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They function as the same as the previous games. However, they have a stronger version of themselves residing in Halcandra, similar to how Koozers replace Bronto Burts in the previous games.
Kirby's Dream Collection
Kirby: Triple Deluxe
Bronto Burt returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, where it takes more advantage of the foreground/background mechanic than most other enemies. It is often seen hiding in bushes or other obstructions in the background, where it will then attempt to charge Kirby, much like it did in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
Bronto Burts of many different colors appear in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Their color determines their attack patterns.
Kirby Battle Royale
Bronto Burts appear in the intro for Dedede's Cake Royale, and are one of the few standard enemies that Kirby can attack in this title. They don't pose much of a threat, and are only really there to let Kirby practice his swordsmanship on the way to the tournament.
In Slam Hockey, a Bronto Burt serves as the referee, and carries contestants knocked out of the arena back in.
Super Smash Bros. series
Super Smash Bros. (64)

Brawl trophy description

|These pink, winged enemies come from the Kirby series. In Smash Run, there are three different types floating around: one that flees when a fighter approaches, one that flies sideways, and one that chases fighters. Their spinning attack is weak, but it can cause knock-back if it lands repeatedly.||These pink, winged enemies are all over the place in the Kirby series. In Smash Run, there are three different types of Bronto Burt, including one that relentlessly chases after you. Their spinning attack might not deal much damage, but there's a danger you could get launched if it hits repeatedly, so be careful!|
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Bronto Burt appears as a Novice-level support Spirit in this game, granting the equipping fighter 'Floaty Jumps', which causes them to fall slower in the air.
