Super Bonkers is a slightly stronger version of the Mid-Boss Bonkers who debuts in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. He is unique in that he is a Mid-Boss that yields a Super Ability, whereas all the other Super Abilities are yielded by normal enemies.

Appearance and characteristics[edit]

Super Bonkers EX

Aesthetically, Super Bonkers retains his regular counterpart’s purple-maroon armor jacket, but he now has red trimmings that look like flames adorning his sleeves. Like the other Super Ability enemies, he has a star on his hair, and a multicolored aura around his body. Super Bonkers also wears black pants with light black detailing stylized as flames near the cuffs. He also wields a slightly pink-hued hammer, as opposed to Bonkers' standard hammer.

Upon his defeat, Super Bonkers will yield Kirby the Grand Hammer ability. Super Bonkers cannot be directly inhaled to get Grand Hammer because he explodes immediately upon defeat, leaving the Grand Hammer Ability Star behind. The Ability Star itself can be inhaled or merely touched to obtain the ability. Since Super Bonkers is a Mid-Boss, he does not respawn upon leaving and returning, unlike the other Super Ability enemies.

In Extra Mode, Super Bonkers' armored jacket is black with orange flame-shaped trimmings. His hair and pants are red and the trimmings on the pants are orange like the ones on his sleeves. Super Bonkers EX also has a hammer with a gray tone to it. The wooden section of it is red, however.

Even though Super Bonkers is a Mid-Boss, he is not fought in The Arena or The True Arena. This is likely because these modes do not use Super Abilities, and even if he did not yield one, he is effectively just a variation of regular Bonkers.


Super Bonkers retains all of the attacks that his regular counterpart uses: he still uses the same jumping attack, hammer swing, thrown coconuts, spinning hammer move, and Hammer Flip from the Main Mode.

In his EX form, Super Bonkers EX uses all of his previous attacks again, but with more speed and power. He also uses a flying hammer spin in which coconuts are thrown, much like Bonkers EX.


In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Super Bonkers can be found in the following levels and stages:

Super Bonkers locations in Kirby's Return to Dream Land  
Stage Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 Stage 4 Stage 5
Cookie Country No No No No No
Raisin Ruins No No No No No
Onion Ocean No No No No N/A
White Wafers No Yes No No No
Nutty Noon No No No Yes No

  • Super Bonkers is not the only provider of Grand Hammer. Kirby can also obtain the ability from a glowing hammer thrown out by Magolor EX during his boss fight.
  • Due to the nature of Bonkers' appearances resulting in him having less health or significance, Super Bonkers, while not technically stronger than regular Bonkers, appears to be tougher in practice.
