Dropping from the sky, Bumbers fall slowly and pace back and forth after they land. To avoid them easily, run under them before they land.
— Description • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards Official Strategy Guide (Prima)

Bumber is a regular enemy from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. He is a round orange being with a purple and violet umbrella sticking out of his head that can slow his descent in the air. He gives no ability when swallowed. As he drops, he jiggles around, seemingly made of jelly.

Bumber has yet to appear in the series since Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, although similar enemies such as Sasuke have.

Games

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Bumbers have two little feet (not visible when they float down from the air) and a purple parasol-like hat protruding from their bodies. Whenever they fall, they activate their parasols to slow down their fall. Upon reaching the ground, Bumber will pace back and forth. They yield no ability, unlike their Parasol giving relative, Sasuke. However, if Kirby holds one above his head, he will fall slowly, much like the parasol ability. Also, two sets of Bumbers appear in a mini-boss fight against a giant Kapar in Aqua Star.

Etymology

Bumber's English name is based on the word bumbershoot, another word for umbrella. Its Japanese name is based on the phrase for "falling" (落下).

Trivia

  • A pre-release screenshot of Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards reveals that Bumber's parasol was originally red and white, not unlike the parasol enemies seen throughout the Kirby series. Bumber's feet were also red.[1]
