Ever the entertainer, Mr. Dooter is a dangerous magician able to summon snakes and skulls from his hat. But you're not here for the show. You're here for the ship part he found!

Mr. Dooter (parsed Mr Dooter in the British English Wii version) is the boss of Raisin Ruins in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. He resembles a cross between a magician and a genie and his attacks are characterized in the style of a magician or street performer. He guards the Lor Starcutter's Right Wing.

Appearance[edit]

Mr. Dooter's body is vaguely bowling-pin shaped, with a light blue complexion to his skin. His face consists only of two eyes, and he has no feet or arms, sporting disembodied gloves reminiscent of Magolor's physique. He wears a turban which sports a feather and a gem inset on the front, and his main dress is what could only be described as 'regal djinni wear', with a gold accent and a red vest.

When his health is half-depleted, Dooter will cast a spell upon himself to increase his size, then will open up with more aggressive attacks.

In Extra Mode, Mr. Dooter has red skin with a blue-feathered turban and a black vest. Most notably, he is also sporting a mustache.

Attacks[edit]

Mr. Dooter in Extra Mode.

The following lists all of Mr. Dooter's attacks in the Story Mode of Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Attacks - Story Mode  
Attack Description
マジックアイテム投げ
Magic Item Throw
Mr. Dooter juggles three objects for a moment, while hopping forward. After a short time, he will levitate these objects and attempt to throw them at Kirby. Depending on the object, it can be deflected while levitating, or inhaled while it is being thrown. Objects include Dooter Skulls and blue bombs. Bombs can be swallowed to grant the Bomb Copy Ability. In the second phase of the fight, Dooter will mix up the objects, throwing several different types at a time, and may also throw Gordos into the mix. The objects will also be larger. If Mr. Dooter juggles three bombs, he then quickly levitates them in a line in front of him, dropping them down shortly after. While Mr. Dooter is juggling objects, Kirby can get rid of them early if he uses a Super Inhale or attacks them.
トルネイド攻撃
Tornado Attack
Mr. Dooter spins himself into a tornado and moves about the room in a style reminiscent of Kirby's Tornado ability. He will hover in the air and attempt to target and land on Kirby, producing stars as he does so. In the second phase, this attack will touch down several times before finishing in a stomp.
バウンド移動
Bound Movement
Mr. Dooter performs a series of three jumps across the stage, the last one ending in a stomp that produces stars.
ハットマジック
Hat Magic
Mr. Dooter pulls his turban off, and commands Red Snakes out of it to attack Kirby, which can be spat back at him. In the second phase, he summons Babuts as well.
Second phase only  
天空バウンド
Sky Bound

Attack names listed are from official Japanese strategy guides.
This isn't part of the show! Mr. Dooter EX is here, and he is ANGRY! His Dooter Skulls are now covered in flames, and he's throwing out fiery punches! Stay clear of his pyrotechnics—they HURT!

Once defeated, Mr. Dooter will fall onto his back, his turban popping off. He will then explode, revealing the Lor's Right Wing.

Role in Merry Magoland[edit]

Mr. Dooter makes a good show.

By completing his boss battle in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Mr. Dooter will appear in Merry Magoland to perform ball juggling for an audience of Waddle Dees. Additionally, unlockable Dress-Up Masks based on his regular and EX forms can be worn, provided the player has already defeated him in Story Mode and Extra Mode respectively.

Trivia[edit]

  • Mr. Dooter's “Hat Magic” attack is a reference to a well-known Japanese comedian named Shopan Igari. He was famous for dressing in an Arabian outfit and saying "Red Snake, come on!", after which a red snake puppet would appear in front of him. For Mr. Dooter's attack, he pulls red snakes out of his turban. The enemy is even officially named Red Snake (レッドスネーク).
    • The same comedian also had yellow and green snakes in his arsenal, which are referenced by Mr. Dooter's alternate forms: Mr. Dooter EX has Yellow Snakes (イエロースネーク), while Electricky Dooter has Green Snakes (グリーンスネーク).
