Behold! It's the brutal, brutish Buffahorn! Weak attacks won't stand a chance against this critter's forward tackle. Good thing they have a hard time stopping! If you're careful, you can trick them into running off cliffs. They'll be OK down there. They're real tough.
— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Buffahorn is a large enemy resembling a compact brown bison who appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land as a member of the Beast Pack. Buffahorn has a huge head with horns which curve forward when it is angry, and its main attack strategy is to charge forward at Kirby when it sees him. Buffahorn has high health and cannot be interrupted by weak attacks while it is charging, but when charging, it has a hard time turning, and will be stunned if it runs into a wall. Many Buffahorns do not bother trying to turn at all, instead opting to charge in a single direction. As suggested by its figurine description, Buffahorn can also be bested by forcing it to run off a cliff into a bottomless pit.

Buffahorn can be inhaled with enough effort, but it grants no ability if swallowed. It is a large enemy, so spitting it out will create a penetrating projectile. Defeating Buffahorn rewards Kirby with a green Star Coin.


Buffahorn can be found in the following stages:
