Kirby Super Star Ultra artwork
Iron Mam resembles an armored baby, with spiked balls for shoulder pads.
Iron Mam attacks by using the two fist-like balls at her sides. She gives the Fighter ability when swallowed. Sometimes, she'll jump and make a star at her front which Kirby can inhale (though the star only appear in the remake).
Iron Mam also appears as the final competitor in Megaton Punch.
- Iron Mom was likely named Iron Mam (likely pronounced "Iron Ma'am") in the English translation of Kirby Super Star Ultra to make a pun on Iron Man, a Marvel Comics super hero.
- Notably, Iron Man is the protagonist of his franchise wearing a metal suit. Iron Mam's face bears a striking resemblance to Kirby's -- Kirby is obviously the main protagonist of the series -- and Iron Mam wears a metal suit.
- Iron Mam seems to resemble Waddle Dee, or even Kirby with armor.
- Jukid, another mid-boss of Kirby Super Star, acts very similarly in attack pattern.
- Also, both Jukid and Iron Mam have detached hands.
- Iron Mam wears red shoes that resemble those of Meta Knight in all of her in-game appearances and in Kirby Super Star artwork; however, in her Kirby Super Star Ultra artwork, she appears to have red feet that that are the similar to those Kirby possesses.
