Dubior is a Mid-Boss that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It resembles a UFO-like floating robot, with yellow shining eyes. Its underside is orange, and surrounding that side are five stubs that shoot lasers. It yields the Spark ability when defeated and Inhaled.

Dubior has an advantage over most other Mid-Bosses in that it can hover, and spends much of its time off the ground. It is also capable of summoning little minions (known as Dubior Jr.s[from internal data]) to defend itself, and delivers an arsenal of electric attacks.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Dubior made its debut appearance in this title. It does not appear until relatively late into the game, and is the last of the Mid-Bosses to be revealed. It is the only inhalable Mid-Boss in the game who can hover, making it somewhat trickier to battle than the others. In the Extra Mode, it appears as Dubior EX, bearing an altered appearance and more potent attacks.

Dubior appears in the following stages:

Kirby's Dream Collection[edit]

Dubior appears in New Challenge Stages, in the Smash Combat Chamber and in the Smash Combat Chamber EX. It looks and fights the same way as it did in Return to Dream Land and is worth 1000 points when defeated.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Dubior in Kirby: Planet Robobot.

Dubior appears in this game, serving the same function as before, though it now possesses the ability to attack from the foreground and background. An upgraded version known as Dubior 2.0 also appears, though it bears a great resemblance to Dubior EX from Return to Dream Land.

Dubior appears in the following stages:


  • Dubior's normal color scheme pays homage to the Robotic Operating Buddy, also known as R.O.B. (specifically the Famicom version).
