Headbutt (also called Head Thrust) is a technique that Kirby can perform in many main series Kirby titles. To perform this technique, all Kirby has to do is jump, and then hit his head on something. This will allow him to break Star Blocks above him, and in certain instances, can also damage enemies.

To damage enemies with this maneuver, Kirby will need to be very close to them when he initiates the jump. Done correctly, it will knock them back and deal them damage similar to that of an Air Pellet. However, this move is dangerous, as performing it too late, or against certain enemies like Gordos, will instead result in Kirby getting hurt.
