— Figurine description from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.

Hot Head is a common enemy in the Kirby series who first appeared Kirby's Adventure. In every game that he appears, Hot Head gives Kirby the Fire Copy Ability when inhaled.

Hot Head is usually depicted as being orange-red, but is also found in other colors. He is about as tall as Kirby, and his physique consists of a main head-body with two stubby feet and no arms. His mouth is funnel-shaped, similar to octopus-like enemies such as Flotzo. He has a bright orange mane which often flickers like fire, making his incendiary nature fairly easy to recognize.

Attacks[edit]

Hot Head attacks Kirby by either shooting a single fireball from his mouth at Kirby, usually done from a distance, or breathing out fire, which is usually done if he is near Kirby. Neither of these attacks are particularly quick, but they can catch Kirby off-guard if he is not paying attention. The fireball attack in particular is capable of being fired at many different angles, making it more potentially accurate than Shotzo fire.

When Hot Head is controlled by Ghost Kirby in Kirby: Squeak Squad:

  • Press and release B to shoot a fireball;
  • Press and hold B to breathe fire.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

Hot Head appears as a common enemy in this game. He once again shoots fireballs at Kirby, though these can be blocked using the Rainbow Rope. Given the nature of this game, this is Hot Head's only appearance where he cannot provide a Copy Ability.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Hot Head makes a cameo appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a power-up Sticker for Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary. He can only be equipped on Kirby, King Dedede and Meta Knight and increase their Flame attack by 10.

In Kirby: Right Back at Ya![edit]

Hot Head as it appears in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!.

Hot Head makes a tiny cameo appearance as a monster in the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! episode Cowardly Creature. He is shown briefly training as part of the "Young Monsters of the Future" program run by monster clowns, balancing an aerial ball over his head. Notably, he resembles his artwork from Kirby's Adventure.
