The Gigant Chicks[1] are Mid-Bosses from Kirby: Triple Deluxe. They are fought using the Hypernova ability.

The chicks each resemble a large spherical bird with wide wings and pea-shaped yellow eyes. Each one is of a different color and bears a bowtie of a certain color. They attack by flying around and firing Air Bullets (similar to the ones used by Whispy Woods or Flowery Woods). To defeat them, Kirby must hit them with the Mandola Roots that grow out of the center of the arena by inhaling them with his Hypernova ability. The chicks battle one at a time, the order of which is specified in the table below.

The Chicks[edit]

Image Number Description
KTD Gigant Chick 1.png
1 The first green chick does not move from its position once it flies in and will puff out one puff attack at a time.
KTD Gigant Chick 2.png
2 The second blue chick can fire two puffs at a time and will occasionally fly between the sides.
KTD Gigant Chick 3.png
3 The third purple chick has much more erratic flying patterns, and will fly whenever it is not puffing out three puffs in succession. When defeated, it hits the screen, unlike the others.

When defeated, the chicks lose their plumage and plummet to the ground. They are only encountered in two locations, Stage 1 of Old Odyssey and Stage 8 EX of Royal Road.
