Wham Bam Rock is a boss appearing in Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. In both games, apart from appearing in The Arena, he is the final boss of The Great Cave Offensive and also the boss of the planet Cavios in Milky Way Wishes.

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, a stronger, redesigned version of Wham Bam Rock named Wham Bam Jewel appears in Helper to Hero and The True Arena.

While Wham Bam Rock himself does not appear in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, a Stone transformation is based on him.


Wham Bam Rock appears drastically different in Kirby Super Star Ultra compared to his original design.

Kirby Super Star[edit]

In Wham Bam Rock's first appearance in Kirby Super Star, he appeared as a dark face with four green, leaf-like strands of hair, a green jewel on its forehead, two large, yellow eyes, an expressionless mouth with big, red lips and two hoop earrings dangling from invisible ears.

Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

He was redesigned into a head entirely made of brownish gray rock in Kirby Super Star Ultra. Whereas he keeps his basic facial features, his hair now consists of five thick, lithic leaves, his ears are visible as angular stone structures on the sides of his head and his earrings are shaped like a rhombus. In addition, his face is much less expressionless and changes throughout the battle.

In Helper to Hero and The True Arena, Wham Bam Jewel, a more difficult version of Wham Bam Rock is encountered.
