This article is about Bronto Burt as a character. For other uses, see Bronto Burt (disambiguation).
Ah HA!! I have found my next victim!!
— Bronto Burt in Kirby's Avalanche

Bronto Burt, originally named Bront Burt,[1] is a round flying creature who is one of the most prevalent enemies in the Kirby series, having first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land and since showing up in over 30 subsequent Kirby games. Throughout his appearances, his behavior has stayed relatively unchanged: he flies through the air in various patterns and attacks Kirby by collision. Some Bronto Burts fly in a set wavy pattern, others follow Kirby, and still others appear by diving and looping before flying in a set pattern. Bronto Burt is often found in sky-themed levels, but he can occur anywhere outside of water.

Bronto Burt can typically be described as being small and round with two pairs of semi-transparent, insect-like wings, tiny yellow or orange feet, large eyes with long eyebrows, and a small mouth. In later appearances, he has blush marks similar to Kirby's. Bronto Burt is described in his Super Smash Bros. Brawl trophy as "A bird that looks a lot like Kirby...", but this designation of "bird" is not corroborated within the Kirby series itself. Also according to this trophy, he does not serve King Dedede, and he divebombs from time to time, hurting Kirby only because he is in the way. Bronto Burt also has color variants, as seen in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, although they are typically only aesthetic. These color variants are not as common as the pink variation.

Bronto Burt is among the most ubiquitous enemies in the Kirby series, appearing in every game except for Kirby's Star Stacker and its SNES remake, and the Team Kirby Clash games.

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

Bront Burts flying through the air in Kirby's Dream Land.

KDL Bronto Burt sprite.png In Kirby's Dream Land, Bront Burt (as he is known in this game) makes his debut appearance alongside Kirby and many of his classic adversaries. In this game, Bront Burt is a relatively common airborne enemy. His attack pattern involves flying through the air, falling and looping, following Kirby, or jumping followed by flying straight. As with other enemies in this game, he can be defeated in one hit or by getting inhaled, and is worth 400 points when defeated via a Star Bullet or item.

In the Normal mode of Kirby's Dream Land, Bront Burt may be found in every stage except for Mt. Dedede. Koozer replaces Bront Burt in the Extra Game.

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

KA Bronto Burt sprite.pngKNiDL Bronto Burt sprite.png Bronto Burt reappears in Kirby's Adventure and its remake. He behaves very similarly to how he did in his previous appearance, and is also a relatively common sight in stages.

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

In Kirby's Pinball Land, Bronto Burt appears in the Kracko Land stage. He can occasionally be made to appear and fly across the board after bumping into Cloudy. Bumping into Bronto Burt defeats him and is worth 3600 points.

Kirby's Dream Course[edit]

In Kirby's Dream Course, Bronto Burt does not appear as a regular enemy. Instead, he has the role of returning Kirby or Keeby to the course if they overshoot and go out of bounds, carrying them to the place they were before making the erring shot. This role is similar to the one that Angie performs in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn.

During night-time (triggered by the Night Switch), Flapper performs this role instead.

Kirby's Avalanche[edit]

— Kirby's Avalanche Instruction Booklet (North American print), page 21

Bronto Burt appears as Kirby's second rival in the easy mode of Kirby's Avalanche, after Waddle Dee in the main game. This is also the only place where he can be fought. Notably, this is the only time in the series when Bronto Burt has dialogue, though the canonicity of this is in doubt.

Kirby's Dream Land 2[edit]

Kirby's Block Ball[edit]

KBBa Bronto Burt sprite.png Bronto Burt appears as an enemy in Kirby's Block Ball, worth 300 points on defeat. When defeated, he will drop some small feathers and food items pretty commonly netting Kirby some additional points. For some reason, he only appears in three stages in the game, two of which are the first couple stages.

KSS Bronto Burt.pngKSSU Bronto Burt Sprite.png Bronto Burt appears again in Kirby Super Star and its remake as a common airborne enemy. He has low HP compared to most enemies in the game, which makes him easier to defeat, and is worth 300 points when defeated. He appears in all main game modes except for Gourmet Race and Revenge of the King (the latter or which replaces him with Koozer). In Kirby Super Star Ultra, Bronto Burt is also represented in both Kirby on the Draw and in Kirby Card Swipe.

He is among the most basic and ubiquitous foes in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, appearing on every star except for Dark Star (where only N-Zs exist as common enemies). Lifting a Bronto Burt after inhaling him will make him flap his wings, propelling Kirby into the air for a short while. Adeleine also draws Bronto Burts in her boss fight.

In this game, Bronto Burt differs slightly from his usual appearance, having one pair of wings, much thicker eyebrows, darker pupils, and no mouth.

KEY Bronto Burt artwork.png

The Yarn form of Bronto Burt appears many times in Kirby's Epic Yarn and its enhanced port. In these games, in addition to standard Bronto Burts, some Bronto Burts carry bombs or even Spear Waddle Dees and drop these on Kirby or Prince Fluff. They often appear in the Tankbot sections. Bronto Burt is also represented as a piece of furniture depicting him in plushie form, worth 2000 beads from the Furniture Shop. Another furniture piece - the Totem Pole found in Secret Island - also depicts Bronto Burt, though this time paired with Waddle Dee and Waddle Doo.

In Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, Bronto Burt also makes an appearance in Stage 4 of the Sub-Game Slash & Bead.

Bronto Burt makes a return in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake, Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. He functions largely the same as in the previous games.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Artwork of Bronto Burt from Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Bronto Burt returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, where he takes more advantage of the foreground/background mechanic than most other enemies. He is often seen hiding in foliage or other obstructions in the background, where he will then attempt to charge Kirby, much like he did in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. There are also insectoid (more than usual) variants found in the Royal Road level called Sectra Burt, which presumably serve Queen Sectonia.

Bronto Burt is also featured on two keychains, depicting his sprites from Kirby's Dream Land and Kirby Super Star. He also appears as an enemy in the sub-game Dedede's Drum Dash.

Kirby Fighters Deluxe and Kirby Fighters 2[edit]

In Kirby Fighters Deluxe and its sequel Kirby Fighters 2, Bronto Burt is one of the enemies that can appear (in his original 8-bit form) on the Butter Building Battle Stage. Here, three of them can be seen flying in a wavy pattern across the stage, and will deal 12 damage to any fighters they come into contact with. They can be defeated easily by most attacks.

Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe[edit]

Bronto Burt makes an appearance in Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe as hazards on the various courses for King Dedede to avoid. He typically can be seen hovering in place, though some may incorporate a patrol path into their movements. Two Bronto Burts can also be seen carrying the Blindfold Banner used to obscure parts of the stages.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

Red Bronto Burts are perfectly happy just flapping in place, but the blue ones will almost always swarm Kirby if they get a chance. Don't give them that chance!
— Bronto Burt's Figurine description

Bronto Burt returns in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. This time, there are two different varieties, distinguished by color. The familiar magenta ones fly in set patterns or hold in place while the new blue ones will doggedly pursue Kirby until he or they are defeated. In addition, there is a big blue Bronto Burt that can be encountered in some stages that takes seven Touch Dashes to defeat.

Bronto Burt provides 100 points and 3 Point Stars when defeated. The Big Bronto Burt awards 500 points and 10 Point Stars.

Kirby's Blowout Blast[edit]

Bronto Burt (and his Sectra equivalent) can be found in Kirby's Blowout Blast as one of the common enemies that Kirby will need to contend with. He typically tries to fly slowly toward Kirby, and is worth a base score of 100 points when defeated.

Kirby Battle Royale[edit]

Bronto Burt appears in the intro for Dedede's Cake Royale, and is one of the few standard enemies that Kirby can attack in Kirby Battle Royale. He does not pose much of a threat, and is 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, similar to his role in Kirby's Dream Course.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Kirby's Dream Buffet[edit]

A Bronto Burt in Kirby's Dream Buffet

Bronto Burt reappears as a common enemy in Kirby's Dream Buffet, here slightly redesigned to resemble a sugar-coated gummy treat. He serves as an obstacle on racing tracks, and can be seen carrying strawberries in the Minigame mode. A few Bronto Burts can be found in hard-to-reach spots in the Free Rolling course.

Bronto Burt also appears on two Character Treats, one using his sprite from Kirby's Dream Land and the other using his artwork from Kirby: Planet Robobot.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. (Nintendo 64)[edit]

In the original Super Smash Bros., Bronto Burt can occasionally appear fluttering in the background on the Dream Land stage. He has no bearing on the actual gameplay, however. This Bronto Burt would reappear alongside each of the stage's re-inclusions in subsequent games in the series.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Bronto Burt appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Brawl trophy description[edit]

He will pull off sudden dive bombs on occasion, and although he has no ill will toward Kirby, Bronto Burt will sometimes collide with the pink hero if he gets in the way. You should be especially careful of these collisions. Kirby's Dream Land
Kirby: Squeak Squad (American English)/Kirby: Mouse Attack (British English)

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

Bronto Burt appears as an enemy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS's Smash Run mode. Here, he behaves much like he does in the Kirby series, flying through the air and occasionally divebombing fighters, dealing moderate damage if the two collide. Bronto Burt also appears as a trophy in this game.

For 3DS trophy description[edit]

BrontoBurt3DSTrophy.png
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[edit]

Bronto Burt appears as a Novice-level support Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, granting the equipping fighter 'Floaty Jumps', which causes them to fall slower in the air.

This spirit can be obtained in World of Light, in a battle that involves four Pits who favor their side-special move on the Dream Land (64) stage.

In the Kirby novel series[edit]

In the Kirby novel series, Bronto Burt appears as a minor character in Kirby and the Dangerous Gourmet Mansion?!.

Bronto Burt is one of many inhabitants of Dream Land. Early in the story, when Waddle Dee is searching for Chef Kawasaki, Bronto Burt flies in to tell him that the chef is now working for Mrs. Parfaitski. The two are disappointed at this. Bronto Burt remarks that he also was a big fan of Kawasaki's cooking, and then leaves. He is not seen again after this.

Trivia[edit]

  • Bronto Burt is known primarily for flying around. However, he can be seen walking in some areas in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. This is not something he ever does in any other game.
