Poppy Bros. Jr. is a commonly-reoccurring enemy in the Kirby series, first appearing in Kirby's Dream Land. He is a small humanoid figure who wears a clown suit with a cap similar to that of Sword Kirby's, though Poppy Bros. Jr.'s outfit is usually a pale blue in color.

Poppy Bros. Jr.'s role has varied greatly throughout the Kirby series. In his oldest appearances, he provided no Copy Ability and was typically seen riding on Grizzos or balancing on apples and Maxim Tomatoes. Starting with Kirby Super Star (and perhaps following in the footsteps of his older relative, Poppy Bros. Sr.), Poppy Bros. Jr. could be seen tossing bombs, and providing the Bomb ability when swallowed. This game also had Poppy Bros. Jr. throw boomerangs, with this case resulting in Kirby gaining the Cutter ability from him instead. In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and every subsequent 3D Kirby game, Poppy Bros. Jr. consistently provides the Bomb ability, having become the mascot for said ability ever since.

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. first appeared in this title. His main job is to ride on apples and Grizzos, though he can be seen on his own. He is worth 400 points when defeated.

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. appears in this title and its remake, and can be seen balancing on Maxim Tomatoes as well as apples. In order to obtain the tomato, Kirby must inhale Poppy Bros. Jr. to get him off of it. Attempting to attack him with any other method will destroy the tomato. He provides no ability if swallowed.

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. (known here as Junior Poppy Brothers[1]) makes several appearances on the Poppy Brothers' Land series of boards. In the middle board, two of them can be found hiding in holes, and leaving bombs behind. They are worth 250 points when hit here, and their bombs are worth 360 points. On the uppermost floor, three of them can be found emerging from doorways and heading toward unhatched Crack-Tweets. If they get to the eggs, they will kick them causing them to reset, but Kirby can knock them away for 500 points.

Kirby's Dream Land 2[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. reprises his role in this game, acting the same as he did in Adventure.

Kirby's Block Ball[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. appears as the pre-boss enemy in Stage 4 and is worth 5000 points on defeat.

Kirby Super Star (Ultra)[edit]

Kirby Super Star was the first game in the series to give Poppy Bros. Jr. weapons to use against Kirby. He can be seen with either a bomb or a boomerang, providing the Bomb ability in the former case and the Cutter ability in the latter. Despite these weapons, Poppy Bros. Jr. can also be found in more traditional roles, with no weapon or balancing on an apple. Poppy Bros. Jr. can also come in many different tunic colors. Poppy Bros. Jr. can be called as a helper, gaining the move-set of Bomb Kirby and an Infinity Jump. In Revenge of the King, Poppy Bros. Jr. is replaced by a similar enemy called Perot.

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, Poppy Bros. Jr. is known as Poppy Bro Jr. and also appears as one of the selectable characters in Helper to Hero.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. appears in this game, though not in his usual role. He rides along a bouncy ball in half-pipe areas moving back and forth, and will bounce Kirby if they collide. There are two varieties, with blue Poppys traveling in a smaller arc, and red ones covering the whole width of the half-pipe.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. appears in this title, once again providing the Bomb ability consistently. He comes in various sizes, and tosses his bomb in a consistent arc at Kirby and his friends.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe & Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. acts much as in Return to Dream Land, though now, he gains the ability to toss bombs between foreground and background.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Poppy Bros. Jr. gains his biggest role in this title, as well as a re-design. He is the first enemy who Kirby befriends, appearing in the cut-scene as the enemy Kirby first charms using the Friend Heart. As an ally, Poppy Bros. Jr. has all of the same moves as Bomb Kirby, an Infinity Jump, and the ability to receive a Power Effect.

Poppy Bros. Jr. also has a slot in Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!, with his adventure given the name 'Guest Star Poppy Bros. Jr. Bombs Away!', and can be selected in The Ultimate Choice.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U trophy description[edit]

"Sometimes riding on Grizzos, other times balancing on apples or Maxim Tomatoes, this little clown clearly has some skills. Unfortunately, his job isn't to make people laugh--it's to get in Kirby's way. As you might expect from the "Jr." in his name, there's also a Poppy Bros. Sr., and he's a slightly bigger nuisance."

Trivia[edit]

Picture 4.png
Poppy Bros. Jr. in Helper to Hero.
  • Poppy Bros. Jr.'s alternative coloration in Kirby Super Star Ultra's Helper To Hero game is a purple suit and hat.
  • Poppy Bros. Jr.'s bomb (in hand) blows up in 5 seconds unless thrown.
  • Poppy Bros. Jr. initially had different eyes, which resembled black dots with wedges in the middle like a more classic cartoon. In newer titles, his eyes look more like Kirby's, though they are slightly wider.
  • Poppy Bros. Jr. is the first Friend that Kirby makes in Kirby Star Allies. His befriending is meant to teach the player how to use the mechanic.
