This article is about the lava-based fireball enemy, and should not be confused with Madoo or Magu.

Magoo is a ball-like flame enemy that exists in volcanic areas, bobbing to and fro from the molten lava, where it resides, in both Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. When ingested by Kirby, he will obtain the Burning copy ability. In The Crystal Shards, the Magoo is a native to the lava worlds of Neo Star, and interestingly does not appear on any other realm in the game. Magoo is one of the only enemies, besides Burnis, that is apparent during the Magman boss battle in The Crystal Shards that can be used as a projectile, in the case that Kirby does not already possess some form of Copy Ability.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land 3[edit]

KDL3 Magoo Sprite.png Magoo makes its first appearance in this game. It can be found only in magmatic areas, hopping in and out of pools of molten lava. Magoo's only method of attack is collision, and it hops in and out of lava repeatedly until defeated. If inhaled, it will grant the Burn ability.


In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Magoo can be found in the following levels and stages:

K64 Magoo Sprite.png Magoo returns in this game, debuting in 3D, though it still resembles its 2D counterpart from before. Like before, Magoo only appears in pools of magma, jumping out in regular intervals. Magoo appears on the 68th Enemy Info Card.


Magoo can be found in the following levels and stages:

  • Magoo shares its Japanese name and status as a fire-based enemy with Magu from Kirby Mass Attack, but it is unclear if the two entities are related, and the Kirby Character Encyclopedia considers them separate characters.
