This little bulb glows with the love of a pure heart, but no one wants to get anywhere near him. It's tough to make friends when you electrocute anyone who touches you. Still, he keeps on glowing, 'cause that's what you do.
— Figurine description of Bzztbulb from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Bzztbulb is an enemy which made his first appearance in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, resembling a small bed-sheet ghost with a light on his head and a yellow sash around his waist. He stays in one place, periodically enveloping himself with a hazardous electric barrier that disappears after a while. While he is unprotected, he can be easily defeated by Kirby's Touch Dash or Waddle Dee's spear, and confers 100 points and 3 Point Stars when defeated. He can also sometimes be seen attached to balloons.


In Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Bzztbulb appears in the following locations (does not include Gondola Bzztbulb appearances):
