Hunter Scarfy is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It cannot be inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Hunter Scarfy is a salmon-colored variant of Scarfy. It can turn into a red Mutant Scarfy as well.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Hunter Scarfy guards a key. Like its regular orange cousin, it cannot be inhaled. However, Hunter Scarfy will not transform into its mutant form when Kirby attempts to inhale it. Instead, it transforms when Kirby or one of his friends grabs its key. Hunter Scarfy will chase him until he drops it or uses it to open a door. After the latter happens, the enemy returns to its normal state. Unlike regular Scarfys, it will not explode if it touches a player. In Extra Mode, more Hunter Scarfys appear than in the Main Mode, to increase the difficulty of the game.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Like ordinary Scarfys, Hunter Scarfys can chase Kirby from the background to the foreground (or vice-versa) if he switches planes with a 3D Warpstar.


  • Hunter Scarfy mimics the behavior of Phanto from Super Mario Bros. 2.
  • Some Degouts mimic Hunter Scarfy's behavior, only chasing after the players if one grabs a key.
