Flamberge (named Flam Rouge in Japan) 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.

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.

Flamberge is faced in the Inner Sanctum and Sizzlai Moon stages in Story Mode. She can also be fought in Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! and The Ultimate Choice.

The following lists all of Flamberge's attacks. Attacks in italics are used during the second phase only.

Berge Rush Flamberge performs down & up slashes and multi-stabs with her sword, usually followed by 'Berge Finish'.
Berge Finish Flamberge swings her sword to send 4-way fireballs.
Flam Flambé Flamberge jumps and thrusts down her sword. Then, she drags her sword and sets her path on fire.
She leaves her sword on the ground for a while but she will conjure her sword 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.
Barbeque Party Flamberge begins with this attack during the sececond phase of her first battle.

Flamberge jumps and thrusts down her sword, making a stone on impact stuck on her sword like a barbeque stick. She will do this 4 times in a row.
Then, she flies up and swings her 'barbeque' sword to send the flaming stones back onto the ground, which can be coolded down to yield the Stone ability.

Red Hot Baked Sword Flamberge conjures 4 flaming swords and tosses them onto the ground. Each sword creates a fire pillar.
The flaming swords can be cooled down to yield the Sword ability.
Oven Well-done Flamberge conjures a cannon to shoot flames horizontally, leaving Recoil Stars on impact.
The burning fuse can be put out to make her cannon explode, leaving her stunned and vulnerable to attacks from Kirby & his allies.
Attack names listed are taken from Japanese guide book.

When she is fought again on Sizzlai Moon, Flamberge's attacks are more elaborate, but still fundamentally the same.

Music

Spoilers! Notice: Stop right there, stubby little pink thing!
Spoilers abound! If you do not wish to read them, skip ahead to the next heading or find a different article.

Flamberge's battle theme, shared by Francisca, is titled Prayer song to God[1] (Japanese/Chinese version).

The song title and three verses of the lyrics are shown on the pause menu screens from Francisca, Flamberge, and Zan Partizanne during their battles in The Ultimate Choice.

The 'God' is likely Void Termina but this song is titled Song of Supplication on the pause menu of Francisca's The Ultimate Choice battle in the English version.

For the full lyrics, see Void Termina.
