HR-H is the futuristic, anthropomorphic guardian of the Shiver Star, battled in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. HR-H places a firm focus on physicality in each of its attacks, all of which attempt to either smash or blow Kirby to smithereens. Like previous bosses, however, HR-H's weak point is practically anywhere on its body that Kirby can land a shot. According to the Enemy Info Cards, HR-H changes its name to HR-E when it enters its second form.


Boss fight against HR-H
HR-H in its HR-E form during a later part of the battle.

The main challenge of this battle is being able to avoid HR-H's rockets and wing attacks. HR-H primarily uses its wings to attack Kirby, though also possesses a sweeping laser occasionally fired from its head. Over the course of the battle, HR-H fires rockets at Kirby that can be inhaled and spat out at its wings to damage it, or swallow it for the Bomb ability.

At the beginning of the second phase, the boss becomes HR-E, shifting to a form similar to that of Heavy Lobster. HR-E chases Kirby along the platform, firing rockets and snapping at Kirby with its pincers. Kirby can easily defeat this phase by repeating the pattern of inhaling missiles and spitting them back out at HR-E's black body. If after around four minutes HR-E is not defeated, it will transform back to HR-H and new platforms will stop appearing, which in consequence will make Kirby fall into a bottomless pit.[1]

The fight may go much quicker if Kirby has a Copy Ability (i.e. Burning, Cutter, etc.) or a Power Combo.
