Gator (Kirby Super Star)
- This article is about the enemy in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. For the enemy in Kirby's Epic Yarn, see Gator (Kirby's Epic Yarn).
Gators are green, alligator-like enemies that first appeared in Kirby Super Star. They have large expressive faces with four sharp teeth and a yellow frill on their backs, but do not have any limbs, forcing them to move by hopping around instead. They do not provide a Copy Ability when swallowed.
Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra
In Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Gators can only be encountered in The Great Cave Offensive and Milky Way Wishes. If a Gator spots Kirby, it jumps on him and attempts to bite him. They bite several times in a row, causing a lot of damage to Kirby.
Gators can come in many colors in these games. In addition to the standard green, they can also be seen in orange, purple, and red.
