Hot Head is a common enemy in the Kirby series who has appeared in many Kirby games to date. It first appeared in Kirby's Adventure, and in all games in which it appears, Hot Head gives out the Fire Copy Ability.

Physical Appearance

Hot Head is traditionally a red creature, but can also be found in other colors. It is approximately 8 inches, which is about the same size of Kirby. On its back is a flame, which indicate its fiery powers.

Hot Head attacks Kirby by either shooting a single fireball from its mouth at Kirby, usually done from a distance, or breathing out fire, which is usually done if they are near Kirby.

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 breath fire.


In Kirby: Squeak Squad, there is a Bubble ability-yielding counterpart called Bubble Head.

In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, there is a super variant of Hot Head known as the Super Hot Head, which provides the Monster Flame Super Ability.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl Sticker

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