This article is about Flamberge on her own. For all three sisters, see The Three Mage-Sisters.
Bahaha! Who would have thought my search for the Jamba Heart pieces would lead me back to you and your puffery! This must be the fiery flames of fate at work! Ooooh yeaaaah! My flames and I are fully stoked now! Beware, you puny pink pest! In the name of Lord Hyness... I'll turn you into a burning ball of meddlesomeness!
— Flamberge in Kirby Star Allies

Flamberge is a boss who made her debut in Kirby Star Allies. She is described as the Blazing General of The Three Mage-Sisters (the other two being Francisca and Zan Partizanne), and serves Hyness, the main antagonist of the game. She is voiced by Rie Takahashi.

In contrast to Francisca (who is Ice-based), Flamberge mainly uses fire in battle. She carries a wavy sword with a fiery enchantment, and also uses a flamethrower. Her fire powers were granted to her after she was saved from an inferno by Hyness. Flamberge has a hot-headed temperament and is quick to anger and frustration. She has a particularly close bond to Francisca, and will not countenance her being attacked by anyone else.

Flamberge's English name is directly taken from the name of a particular type of sword, which is also the flaming sword she wields in battle.

Attacks[edit]

One of the three Jambastion mages, the Blazing General Flamberge rains fiery vengeance upon any who stand in her way. She gets pretty mad if anyone does anything to upset Francisca. In fact, she's kind of riled up right now...

The following tables list all of Flamberge's attacks as a boss in Kirby Star Allies. Attacks in italics are used during the second phase only.

She leaves her sword on the ground for a while, but she will conjure it back later.
  • The flames on the floor can be put out by Artist or Ice/Water/wind-based attacks (see her weaknesses in the Boss Infobox).
  • The flaming sword can be cooled down by the aforementioned element attacks to yield the Sword ability.
BBQ Skewer Flamberge begins with this attack during the second phase of her first battle.

Flamberge jumps and thrusts her sword down into the ground, then pulls it back up now with a stone stuck to it, similar to a barbeque stick. She will do this four times in a row.
She will then fly up and swing her 'barbeque' sword to send the flaming stones back onto the ground, which can be cooled down to yield the Stone ability.

Scorching Sword Plunge Flamberge conjures four flaming swords and individually tosses them into different places in the ground. Each sword creates a fire pillar.
The flaming swords can be cooled down to yield the Sword ability.
Mega Broiler Flamberge conjures a cannon to shoot flames horizontally, leaving Drop Stars on impact.
The burning fuse can be put out to make her cannon explode, leaving her stunned and vulnerable.
Attack names listed are taken from the Japanese guide book and the English version of the Dream Friend moveset.

Flamberge will often Burst Jump to other locations of the stage to set up for certain attacks.
