This article is about the enemy from Kirby Super Star and its remake. For the enemy of the same name which appears in Kirby's Epic Yarn, see "Gator (Yarn)".

Gators are small alligator-like enemies appearing in Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. They slide around on the ground and occasionally jump and try to latch onto and bite Kirby, taking bits of his health off him. Gators do not give a Copy Ability. They are the only enemies in the game capable of attacking Kirby while Kirby endures hits.

Physical Appearance

Gators, as their name implies, look like alligators. They are green with a yellow underside and mohawk (though like other enemies they can come in different colors). They have sharp teeth to bite and lack feet.


  • Gator is modeled after the gators appearing in Revenge of the 'Gator, a pinball game released by HAL Laboratory in 1989.

  • In Kirby Mass Attack, Gators make a cameo in the sub-game Kirby Quest. For one if his attacks, Kirby appears along with an army of 66 Gators and mows down enemies.
