Moto Shotzo is an enemy appearing in Kirby Super Star and its remake. It possesses a spherical body with a white upper half that has a cannon attached to it, while four dark, round spheres are affixed to its orange bottom half for support.

Although its name contains Shotzo, the enemy does not resemble a traditional Shotzo much in behavior apart from its ability to fire cannonballs, primarily due to being mobile and destructible. Inhaling and swallowing a Moto Shotzo does not grant Kirby any Copy Ability.

  • Moto Shotzo's design is a reference to the playable tank from Trax (known in Japan as 突撃!ポンコツタンク (Totsugeki! Ponkotsu Tanku), roughly "Charge! Junk Tank"), an early 1991 Game Boy game developed by HAL Laboratory before they worked on the Kirby series.[1]
