Hot Head is a common enemy in the Kirby series who first appeared Kirby's Adventure. In all of the games in which it appears, Hot Head gives out the Fire ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Hot Head is traditionally an orange-red creature, but can also be found in other colors. It is similar in height to Kirby, making it roughly 8 inches tall. Its physique consists of a main head-body with two stubby feet and no arms. Its mouth is funnel-shaped, similar to octopus-like enemies such as Flotzo. It has a bright orange mane which often flickers like fire, making its incendiary nature fairly easy to recognize.

Attacks

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 it 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.
