Art from the Kirby Super Star manual depicting a Headbutt used on a block.

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 Bullet. However, this move is dangerous, as performing it too late, or against certain enemies like Gordos, will instead result in Kirby getting hurt.


  • This move is similar to Mario's jump breaking blocks.
  • Kirby is unable to use a headbutt while he has something in his mouth.
  • In Kirby Squeak Squad, if Kirby performs a headbutt while in possession of the Parasol ability, the parasol will be squished momentarily against the ceiling in question.
