Birdon is a bird-like enemy that appears in Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. Birdon appears rather frequently in-game and gives the Wing ability when eaten. Birdon is also the Wing Helper. Birdon naturally has the same moves as Kirby with the Wing ability.
Birdon is a small parrot-like enemy best known for its large blue eyes and wearing a helmet with goggles mounted to them. Birdon also has Kirby-like feet. They have a bright, feathery mohawk similar to Dyna Blade and come in a variety of different colors.
In Kirby Super Star Ultra, a card of Birdon appears in the sub-game Kirby Card Swipe. Birdon's card features its enemy coloration.
Birdon starred in Super Star as an uncommon enemy and a Helper. The enemy version shoots sharp feathers at Kirby and attempts to charge into him. The Helper can use all of these techniques in addition to the ones that Wing Kirby can use. Birdon is also an aerial enemy and has no trouble attacking Kirby from the air. In fact, it is actually quite a rare occurrence to see a Birdon attacking from the ground.
In Kirby Super Star Ultra, Birdon is virtually unchanged from the original. A Birdon is also a playable in Helper to Hero as the representative for the Wing ability. This one is green with a purple helmet, yellow wing tips, and a pink Mohawk and pink shoes. His colors also changed slightly in appearance, since he is now less colorful and bright.
