Super Bonkers is a much 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. He is more powerful and has more health than Bonkers, and is a bit darker in color as well.
Appearance and characteristics
Aesthetically, Super Bonkers retains his 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 helmet, 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 inhaled to get the Grand Hammer ability because he explodes immediately upon defeat, leaving the Grand Hammer Ability Star behind which Kirby can pick up. But since Super Bonkers is a Mid-Boss, he can not regenerate.
In EX Mode, Super Bonkers' armored jacket is black with orange flame-shaped trimmings. His helmet 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 and The True Arena because he gives the Grand Hammer Super Ability (and may also be too similar to Bonkers).
Super Bonkers retains many of the same attacks that he used in his normal form. He still uses the same jumping attack, hammer swing, thrown coconuts, spinning hammer move, and flaming hammer uppercut from the main game.
In his EX form, Super Bonkers EX uses all of his previous attacks again (and the newly added flying hammer spin with coconuts move), but with more speed and power.
In Kirby's Return to Dream Land Super Bonkers can be found in the following levels and stages:

- 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.
