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 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.

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.

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.


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.
