Dethskullks suck the life force out of anyone they touch, so proceed with caution when you see one. This bizarre crew travels by pirate ship, where they try very, very hard not to bump into each other.
— Figurine description • Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Dethskullk is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. It is ruled by Dethskullk King.

Physical Appearance

Dethskullk is a purple and magenta ghost with what appears to be a white skull mask on its face and yellow horns. It also resembles a Skully from Kirby Mass Attack.


Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

Dethskullk appears exclusively in the stage The Haunted Ship. It slowly chases Kirby when the hero is turned away from it. The enemy will instantly KO Kirby if the two collide. Dethskullk can only be defeated by using a Star Dash or Invincibility Candy.


Dethskullk's name is derived from the words death, skull, and skulk.


  • Dethskullk's behavior is similar to that of Mumbies and some Scarfys and Degouts, as the three enemies don't attack if the player is looking at them.
