Gordos are a common enemy in the Kirby series, having appeared in every such game in the main series, along with most of the spin-offs. They typically take the appearance of floating blue or black balls with large eyes and spikes around their perimeter.

Gordos are completely immune to any attacks thrown at them; at best projectiles will not penetrate them, at worst the attacker will be damaged in return. As such they are best avoided, not confronted. However this is often easier said than done; Gordos tend to sit in corridors, bounce back and forth between two solid objects vertically or horizontally, circle around blocks, or bounce along the ground affected by gravity, and generally block Kirby's path.

While Gordos cannot be destroyed, they can sometimes be dealt with. If a Gordo is bouncing around a hallway, destroying the block it bounces against will cause it to leave. Many of Kirby's attacks leave him temporarily invincible (like Burning or Wheel), allowing him to dash through a row of Gordos.

Gordos can be part of the pool of available minions for bosses to produce. Whispy Woods and his relatives are the most common examples of enemies who will occasionally drop Gordos as hazards for Kirby to avoid. Gordos dropped in this way typically do not last for long, and will bounce off-screen after a little while.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

KDL Gordo sprite.png Gordos first appeared in this Game Boy title, along with many other foes. Here is where its role as an invincible hazard is established, and it is usually seen either holding in place or moving in set patterns.

Unlike many other enemies, Gordo is not replaced by anything else in the Extra Game. However, it now deals a whopping three bars of damage to Kirby, which is more than any other enemy or hazard in the game, which all deal only one or two bars. Whispy Woods drops them and Lololo & Lalala can push them.

Notably, if Kirby touches the Gordos blocking the doors to the boss rematches in Mt. Dedede, he will be immediately defeated, regardless of how much life he had at the time.

Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

Gordo returns in this title, gaining a somewhat yellow coloration, though its behavior and properties are unchanged. However, it now consistently does only one bar of damage to Kirby, just like everything else.

This was the first game to establish the notion that certain Gordos could be made to leave the screen by removing Star Blocks on their path.

Locations[edit]

Gordo can be found in the following levels and stages:

Stage 6 N/A N/A Yes No No No Yes

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

Gordo (known here as Gordow[1]) appears as a common bumper in all three Pinball Lands, though its purpose changes somewhat in each role. Generally, it is worth 240 points when collided with, cannot be removed, and only bumps Kirby mildly. It can bump Kirby more forcefully in certain situations, however.

In the battle with Whispy Woods, Gordos may occasionally be dropped. If they hit the flippers, the flipper hit will be disabled for a moment. Kirby can bump into them to deflect them.

Kirby's Dream Course[edit]

Gordo appears in this game and can be seen in various courses holding still in the air. Like its other appearances, Gordo cannot be attacked, and the player will take damage if they try to attack it.

One of the four courses in the 2P Game - the Gordo Course - features Gordos prominently.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby's Dream Course, Gordo can be found in the following courses:

Kirby's Block Ball[edit]

Gordo appears in this title exclusively as a projectile tossed by Whispy Woods. When it collides with Kirby, it will deflect him, and it will shrink any paddles it hits.

Kirby Super Star / Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

KSS Gordo.png GordoSSU.png Gordos appear as common hazards in these games. In the original version, they share the pale brown coloration common to Gordos in older titles, but in the remake, they adopt the blue hue that has become the standard for Gordo's modern design. They appear when fighting Twin Woods, Lololo & Lalala (and their revenge form), Whispy's Revenge and Kabula.

Gordo also makes an appearance during the boss fight against Acro.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble[edit]

Gordo appears in Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, where it serves the same purpose as usual. However, there are a few additional aspects of Gordo not found in other games. For instance, Many Gordos can be flipped and turned into Maxim Tomatoes when the player pops the Game Boy Color up. They are also dropped in lines by Kracko during his boss fights to try and fill up the boss arena.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, Gordo can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby Air Ride[edit]

Gordos appear in Kirby Air Ride, serving the same purpose as usual. They are often found floating in place creating spiky barriers on Air Ride courses, though are usually found only in the Time Attack modes. As expected, they cannot be inhaled or defeated, and must simply be avoided.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby Air Ride, Gordo can be found in the following places:

Gordo locations in Kirby Air Ride

Gold Spike[edit]

Quote1.png Sets a huge, spiky gold ball. Quote2.png
— Kirby Air Ride North American instruction booklet, page 28
Gordos on the battlefield in Kirby Air Ride

Gordos also appear in Kirby Air Ride as items called Gold Spikes[2] and an indestructible enemy while the players are racing. Kirby can obtain Gold Spikes only in City Trial, by breaking green boxes or in Destruction Derby. Once Kirby obtains this item, he can throw up to three Gordos ahead of him. After being thrown, the Gordos grow to giant sizes and inflict heavy damage to nearby objects, including the Air Ride machines of enemies and the rider who threw them, though they disappear after a set time. Kirby can drop this item if he collects a different item or Copy Ability, or by getting attacked, and they will not grow if dropped in this way, though they will still damage anyone who touches them.

Interestingly, the instruction booklet description of "Gold Spike" describes it as a "spiky gold ball", whereas it would be more accurate to describe it as a gold-spiky blue ball.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

Gordo appears in this game, looking and acting much the same as it did in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Gordo can be found in the following rooms:

Kirby: Canvas Curse[edit]

KCC Gordo sprite.png Gordo returns in Kirby: Canvas Curse, with the same general look and nature as in previous games. Being invincible, it cannot be stunned or defeated, nor will Rainbow Lines be capable of blocking its course. However, there are methods of pushing Gordos out of the way in some instances, most notably using Touch Blocks to block them in.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby: Canvas Curse, Gordo appears in the following locations:

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

Gordos appear in this game, looking and acting much the way they did in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. Since they are invulnerable enemies, they cannot be possessed by Ghost Kirby.

Oddly, there is one particular point in Stage 1 of Gamble Galaxy where Kirby is prompted to jump into a barrel to avoid a wall of passing Gordos. This is the only time in the game (and the series by extension) where Kirby is ever prompted to do such a thing.

Kirby Mass Attack[edit]

In addition to normal Gordos, massive Gordos can appear on occasion, capable of destroying blocks they came in contact with. If a Kirby touches a Gordo, he will be instantly KO'd.

Gordo also appears in the Sub-Games Field Frenzy (where the player has to avoid tapping it when it appears from a hole), and Strato Patrol EOS (where it is an obstacle that needs to be avoided).

In Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe, Gordos appear in some of the courses as stationary hazards to be avoided. Here, they can come in significantly varying sizes.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

Quote1.png If you touch a Gordo, he'll definitely do damage. But I don't think he means to hurt anyone. I asked him once, and he just stared at me with those big eyes of his. Maybe he doesn't even know the answer... Quote2.png
— Figurine description of Gordo from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Gordo returns in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, serving the same purpose as usual. Notably, unlike most other games, there are lots of Gordos that are affected by gravity, falling when the blocks above them (or balloons they are hanging from) are removed.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Gordo appears in the following locations:

Kirby's Blowout Blast[edit]

Gordos make an appearance in Kirby's Blowout Blast, acting as an indestructible hazard that must be avoided as per usual. Due to not being defeatable, Gordos do not count toward the "Enemies Defeated" bonus.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Gordo in Kirby Star Allies

In Kirby Star Allies, Gordos can be defeated if an obstacle crushes them.

In addition, Parallel Woods can drop Gordos from his canopy and Parallel Dedede can throw Gordos using his hammer during the battles against them.

Kirby Fighters 2[edit]

Gordo plays a number of different roles in Kirby Fighters 2. It retains its previous role as an item in the form of the Gordo Ball. In addition, it is used as a stage hazard in the Gourmet Go Go and Dedede Arena stages, as well as being used in the boss fights against Twin Woods and the variants of King Dedede & Meta Knight.

In Story Mode: The Destined Rivals, there is a special item called the Anti-Gordo Charm, which Kirby can use to take less damage from Gordo Balls and other Gordo collisions.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Gordos appear in several locations and settings in the Super Smash Bros. games, starting with Brawl. King Dedede is able to use a special move involving Gordos in each game he appears in as a fighter. In Brawl, he had a chance to throw a Gordo as part of his Waddle Dee Toss technique, which dealt major damage. In subsequent Smash Bros. games, this move was changed to Gordo Throw, which consistently involves Gordos, but with the added caveat of other fighters being able to knock them back using most attacks.

In The Subspace Emissary, an enemy called Jyk can be found which operates exactly like a Gordo would, and looks similar. Gordo also appears as a sticker in this game and applies a +5 bonus to attack when used by any Kirby series fighter.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Gordos appear in Smash Run, acting as they always have, and serving as a hazard to be avoided. They can damage enemies in addition to the playable fighter, however.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Gordo appears as a spirit. Specifically, Gordo is an Advanced-level Shield-type spirit with no additional effects. It cannot be paired with any support spirits but has somewhat higher stats to compensate for this. Its spirit battle involves fighting against three invisible King Dededes who continuously use the Gordo Throw move on the Green Greens stage.
