— Fatty Whale description in the Enemy Characters section of the Kirby Super Star instruction booklet

Fatty Whale is a boss in Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. He is one of the few water bosses to be fought on land.

As his name indicates, Fatty Whale is a fat blue whale, nearly the size of the room that is his battle arena. In his closed mouth, he holds a wooden pipe. He also wears a white collared shirt and red neckerchief. Upon his defeat in the remake, Fatty Whale gets a bandage on his cheek.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

Kirby punches out Fatty Whale.

Fatty Whale is fought first in The Great Cave Offensive and later in Milky Way Wishes, The Arena and finally Helper to Hero. In Kirby Super Star Ultra, it is red outside of The Great Cave Offensive.

Fatty Whale's strategy, besides attempting to ram Kirby with his body, is using his blowhole to blow out boulders (which yield the Stone Copy Ability when inhaled and swallowed) and sometimes Blippers, which proceed to fall from the sky.

Kirby Fighters 2[edit]

In Kirby Fighters 2, one of the Rare Hats for the Water Copy Ability, the Whale Splasher, is based on Fatty Whale.
