Oh, what a mess! Must I clean up this entire forest?
— Broom Hatter • Kirby's Avalanche

Broom Hatter is a relatively harmless enemy found in the Kirby series. Clad in a black witch's hat, this clean freak always sweeps away the dust wherever she feels necessary. Broom Hatter rarely goes out of her way to attack Kirby. But she does cause damage if Kirby gets in the way of her obsession.

Few changes are made to Broom Hatter between games in both her actions and character design. She is typically a nondescript, simple, and powerless foe.

Physical Appearance

Broom Hatter resembles a stout witch with a broom and a hat with a white band. Like many enemies, she has no head-body distinction. She has no face whatsoever.

Games

Kirby's Dream Land

This was Broom Hatter's first appearance. She appears all throughout the game and will keep to herself as she peacefully sweeps the level clean. As well as moving haphazardly from side-to-side, Broom Hatter may occasionally leap into the air. Unlike most enemies in the extra game, Broom Hatter isn't replaced. Instead, she may now dive off high ledge in an attempt to crush Kirby.

Kirby's Pinball Land

Broom Hatter only makes a very small appearance in this game. She only appears in the Wispy-Woods Bonus Game. Kirby can knock into her to score points.

Kirby's Avalanche

In Kirby's Avalanche, Broom Hatter serves as the seventh competitor Kirby must face, coming after Kabu and before Squishy. Her crazed dialogue with Kirby is below.

  • Broom Hatter: "Oh, what a mess! Must I clean up this entire forest?"
  • Kirby: "I'd worry more about cleaning up your Avalanche skills first!"
  • Broom Hatter: "Dust, dust, sweep...Huh?!??"

Kirby's Block Ball

Once again, Broom Hatter is a very rare enemy. Broom Hatter resides in only two levels of the game. Here she provides food when beaten.

Kirby's Dream Land 3

Her design and tactics remain the same from earlier games, and she will simply sweep around the level once more. Unlike other games, however, if Kirby eats her, he will get the rare Clean ability. With a broom in hand, Kirby can aid her in her endless quest to clean the level, as well as sweep dust at his enemies. Alongside Keke, Broom Hatter is the only enemy that bestows the Clean ability in this game. Not counting the unreleased Kirby GCN, this is the only game in which Broom Hatter yields any ability.

Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble

Like Cappy, Broom Hatter doesn't hurt Kirby when the two come in contact. This enemy rarely moves and instead sweeps one area of the ground. The only way Kirby can take damage from it is if he gets caught between two Broom Hatters or a Broom Hatter and a wall.

Kirby Air Ride

Broom Hatter is off to the races, but still doesn't serve as a major threat to Kirby. Broom Hatter rides around on its broom rather than cleaning, and zooms through the courses.

Kirby GCN

In Kirby GCN, she would have reprised her role as the supplier of the Clean ability.

Other Games

Broom Hatter also appeared in Kirby's Adventure, its remake Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Kirby's Dream Course, Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble, Kirby Super Star and its remake Kirby Super Star Ultra, and Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Broom Hatter appears as a very basic enemy in these following games and is nothing special about her. Once again, Broom Hatter provides no ability and simply waltzes about the level sweeping away the dust.

Broom Hatter also makes a cameo in Kirby Mass Attack. She sometimes appears when Marx uses his black hole attack in Kirby Brawlball.

Trivia

  • In Kirby's Avalanche, her AI is used by Harpy in Puyo Puyo.
