Bowby resembles a bow with two angry eyes and a smug grin that floats in mid-air. Later, in Halcandra, it takes on a redesigned appearance to fit with the planet's industrial theme. Other than this, it is no different from its Planet Popstar variation.
When Kirby walks underneath Bowby, it shoots an arrow straight down in hopes of skewering him.
Bowby's Halcandran form appears in the Item Challenge. It appears in the New Challenge Stages in Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition as well. It appears in the Spark Challenge, the Fighter Combat Chamber, and Magolor Race 1 and 3. Its Halcandran form appears in the Normal Challenge and Magolor Race 3.
Bowby's name is derived from bow, a tool used to shoot arrows. This explains its appearance and attack.
- If Bomb Kirby uses the Drop Bomb attack on a Bowby, it will fall to the ground before being defeated.
