Grizzo is an enemy that resembles a large bear, which walks on all fours and wears a headband. On its back, it sports a pair of stripes of a darker color than the rest of its fur. In early appearances, it is a standard enemy, but its first 3-D appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe marks it as a large enemy.

Game appearances[edit]

KirbyBuilding.png This article or section is under construction. Therefore, please excuse its informal appearance while it's being worked on. We hope to have it completed as soon as possible.

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

Grizzos first appear in Kirby's Dream Land. Here, their official artwork shows them to be light blue with a yellow headband, as well as omitting their stripes, although the latter are clearly visible in the enemy's sprite. Grizzos are only encountered in Green Greens, where they hop around, reducing Kirby's health by two bars should they manage to collide with him. They are sometimes seen bearing Poppy Bros. Jr.s on their back, which does not change their behavior.

Defeating a Grizzo that is being used as a mount enables the rider to continue on its own; likewise, inhaling or otherwise eliminating the rider does not harm the Grizzo. Despite their large size, Grizzos can be inhaled just as easily as most other enemies, and only take a single hit to defeat.

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)[edit]

In Kirby Super Star and its remake, Grizzos reappear as common enemies. Here, they are usually depicted with pale yellow fur, as well as red or pink headbands and stripes. They are often found sleeping, though most of them wake up once attacked. When awake, they act similarly to their Kirby's Dream Land incarnation, but are able to charge at Kirby at a very high speed. While the cannot carry other enemies anymore, Grizzos now possess an enormous amount of health, which can make them very time-consuming to defeat. Hopwever, in spite of their sturdiness, Kirby can inhale them as easily as most other enemies, although he receives no Copy Ability by swallowing them.

In the Revenge of the King stage of Kirby Super Star Ultra, Grizzos are replaced by the tiger-like Galbels.


Grizzo can be found in the following places in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra:

Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn[edit]

Grizzos appear in Whispy's Forest late in the game. They behave similarly to their previous incarnations in the Kirby franchise. Here, however, they can charge through star blocks.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Grizzo's in-game appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

Grizzo returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, though somewhat infrequently. It moves and attacks in a similar manner to earlier appearances, but can only be inhaled after an extended time into the inhale. It is often seen sleeping, blocking off certain desirable paths or positions.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Grizzo returns in this installment, unchanged in function from its previous appearance. There are some cyborg variants, however.
