|When thrown, it expands into a spiky Gordo! Ouch!|
— Kirby Fighters 2 loading screen tip
Gordo Ball is an item which appears in the Kirby Fighters games which creates a large stationary spike hazard wherever it is thrown for a short while. It resembles a Gordo without spikes initially, but when thrown, it becomes larger and grows its characteristic spikes.
Gordo Balls can appear randomly in standard battles. They are initially harmless and can be picked up by fighters, but when tossed, they expand and grow spikes as soon as they hit the ground, a solid wall, or an enemy fighter. Once the spikes come out, anyone who touches it, including the fighter who threw it, will take 24 damage and be knocked back lightly. In addition, most items that touch the Gordo Ball will be destroyed. After about 20 seconds, the Gordo Ball disappears.
In Story Mode: The Destined Rivals
In Kirby Fighters 2's Story Mode: The Destined Rivals, one of the special conditions which can occur in regular stages is referred to as a "Gordo Ball Stage". In this scenario, only Gordo Balls will appear as items during the fight, and they will appear in large numbers. Clearing a Gordo Ball stage nets the player an extra 200 points.
In addition, the Anti-Gordo Charm item allows Kirby and his buddy to resist damage from all Gordos, including Gordo Balls.
