Fishbone is an enemy that appears in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. They grant the Cutter ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Fishbone is, like his name suggests, a skeletal and fish-like enemy. They are made up of three triangular body pieces, each with a different color; their back piece is yellow, their middle piece is orange, and their head is red. The head piece is the largest of the three while the back piece is the smallest. The head piece has a black spot for an eye.


Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Fishbone makes its only appearance in this game. They can fire their head-piece towards Kirby when he approaches. They lose their head after they do this, but they grow one back after a while.

A giant Fishbone is found as a mid-boss in Stage 3 of Rock Star. If Kirby holds a Fishbone above his head, it will fire its head at enemies. Fishbone is also one of the things fired by Acro.


  • Coincidentally, an enemy from the Super Mario universe has the same name, but a completely different attack strategy.
