Magu is a tall lava monster. It has large, piercing yellow eyes and a massive mouth. It also has hands positioned beside it, but it lacks arms.
Magu appears exclusively in Stage 1 of Volcano Valley. It hides in a lava source and waits for the Kirbys to approach. The enemy emerges to surprise them. Any Kirbys that touch Magu catch fire, giving them limited time to douse themselves in a water source before they disintegrate. Magu serves as more of an obstacle than an enemy, as it is harmless if the Kirbys do not touch when it emerges.
Magu hardens into rock if a water bubble is pushed into it. From here, the player can rapidly flick the Kirbys into the enemy to destroy it. If the player does not deal enough damage in a short time span, Magu reverts to its original, dangerous state.
- Magu bears a strong resemblance to Magman, a boss in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
- Magu shares is name with the enemy in Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
