is an enemy that appears only in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It grants no Copy Ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

I³ is a big, green, blocky, boulder-like creature that has a single eye. Its pupil is black.


Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

I³ makes its only appearance in any Kirby title in this game. It drops from the sky when Kirby approaches in an attempt to crush him. After it lands, it will then rise back up and stay up for a while, giving Kirby time to get by. It is invincible, like other obstacle enemies. I³ can often be found in a spot where there is little room below it, making it harder to get past. However, its predictability makes up for the difficulty of the enclosed space.


  • I³ was most likely given its name because it has a single eye (hence the "I") and it is a cube-like monster (hence the ³).
  • I³'s behavior is similar to Thwomp of the Super Mario series, as Thwomp also attempts to crash down on the protagonist.

Related Quotes

I³s are cubes that fall on Kirby if he's under them at the wrong moment. Time your passage to avoid I³s. Don't touch them—even once they've dropped they can still hurt you.
