I'll have no choice but to put you on ice...FOREVER!
— Francisca • Kirby Star Allies

Frozen General Francisca is a boss in the Kirby series, appearing in Kirby Star Allies. She is the first of the three Jambastion Mages, who follow the orders of the evil Hyness. In the Japanese script, Francisca speaks with a feminine and refined speech pattern. So far, she has been shown to speak more directly and forcefully in English.

Physical Appearance

Francisca has disembodied hands and long, blue hair parted to her right. She has a noticeably paler skin tone compared to the other mages. She has no nose, and her eyes more resemble Kirby's as opposed to being one color, but still maintaining eyelashes. She wears a dark purple beret with a bat-like symbol in front, which the game's main antagonist also features on their hood.

Francisca is part of a group called the Jambastion Mages, which are under the command of the game's main antagonist. In the Japanese script, Francisca speaks with a feminine and refined speech pattern. She has been shown to speak more directly and forcefully in English.


Francisca is the boss of Longview Corridor. She mostly attacks using a labrys with a snowflake design; she can swing it normally, or she can enlarge the head and throw it like a disk using magic to capture Kirby and co. by freezing them. She then turns it back into a labrys and flings Kirby and co. at the wall and floor. She can create and fire icicles that can freeze the ground. She also has a soda gun that she shakes before expelling a strong soda current that bounces on the ceiling and floor. If anyone has an ability with an electric-type move, they can attack the soda beam with it. Electricity will then flow through the soda beam and electrocute Francisca, leaving her stunned.

Later in the game, she is fought again on Blizzno Moon. Her attack pattern is somewhat different, however, her soda beam and icicle attacks were changed quite a bit. It takes a little less to charge up her Soda Beam, and she now moves it around by closing it in or moving out. For her icicle attack, the icicles, once fired, now do a loop and head in the opposite direction. She can now get her labrys in the ground and drag it across the arena, then doing an upward slash afterwards. When she drags her labrys, it leaves behind a trail of ice that freezes anyone on contact

…Bonjam. Heh. That’s how we greet people on MY planet. I am Francisca, one of the three generals of magic. Together, we command the Fortress of Shadows known as…Jambastion! We wish to assemble the dark Jamba Heart pieces that were scattered across the universe. Once we do, our most twisted of visions will finally be…untwisted. Unthawed? Unfurled! But I do not wish to waste my time with pointless chatter. So I won’t! Just know that should you attempt to oppose us…I'll have no choice but to put you on ice...FOREVER!

…Hmph. Color me surprised. I certainly didn’t expect to run into your puffy self again. And here I thought you were buried along with the Jambastion… Well then! I’ll just have to ensure that my victory is complete this time! I shall now turn this pink ball of nice into a frozen block of ice! Heh! I always wanted an ice sculpture for my trophy collection!

Undeterred from her quest to find the dark hearts that have rained down across the galaxy, the Frozen General is back and tougher than ever before! Her duties have kept her away from Flamberge lately… She kind of misses her.

-Song of Supplication-

In spite of all, cold as ice! In spite of all, hard as stone!
In spite of all, hear out plea! In spite of all, all alone!
In spite of all, we reconcile! In spite of all, we pass the trial!

In spite of all, hear us three! We beg of thee! We beg of thee!

A "francisca" is a type of throwing axe that was used in the Early Middle Ages. Since Francisca wields an axe as a weapon, her name may have been derived from it.

  • Interestingly, Francisca has been prominently featured as an avatar on the Japanese Kirby 25th Anniversary Twitter account for posts relating to Kirby Star Allies (much like Susie before her).
    • To add to this as shown in a post on the Twitter,[1] Susie and her parallel counterpart appear to be jealous of Francisca.
    • The Twitter would later feature Flamberge and Zan Partizanne as the hosts for sharing content about Kirby Star Allies.
  • The water gun Francisca uses in her fight resembles a soda bottle. She shakes it up before attacking, resulting in the burst of ice water she then attacks Kirby and co. with.
    • This mimics how, in real life, shaking up a soda bottle can cause bubbles of carbon dioxide to form inside the bottle. When opened, the pressure inside drops quickly and the volume of the bubbles increase instantly, causing the soda to burst out.
  • Francisca is weak to fire and electric attacks. Electric attacks can paralyze her, giving the player time to attack. The three Jambastion mages fight similarly to each other, alike to Susie and President Haltmann.
