Starman is a recurring enemy in the Kirby series. It gives the Hi-Jump ability when inhaled, and is the only enemy in the series to do so.

Physical Appearance

Starman is a yellow, featureless, star-shaped creature. It wears a lengthy blue cape, which is secured by a red, gem-like brooch. The top of Starman's head is split into two points.


Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Starman debuts in this game as an enemy. It has two different behaviors: gliding horizontally through the sky along a set path, or walking back and forth, stopping occasionally to jump straight up into the air.

In addition to being a common enemy, one can also be seen in the Butter Building Museum, and others are summoned by Kracko during the boss battle of Grape Garden.

Kirby: Squeak Squad

Starman looks and acts exactly as it does in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It can also be summoned by Mecha Kracko during the battle against him.

Kirby Mass Attack

Starman appears in the sub-game Kirby Brawlball as an enemy. A group of Starmen will occasionally fly across the board in a zigzag pattern, and Kirby can hit them to score points. The enemy's appearance has not changed since Kirby: Squeak Squad.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Starman acts exactly as it does in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, but is now a much rarer enemy. It also appears in the Hi-Jump Challenge.

Kirby Fighters Deluxe

Starman is found in the Butter Building stage, and attacks by leaping at the Kirbys.

In the Super Smash Bros. series

A trophy of Starman exists in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Like several other Kirby trophies in the game, the enemy uses its model from Kirby's Return to Dream Land.


  • The name Starman may reference the enemy of the same name from the Mother series (most notably EarthBound, which HAL also worked on). It also shares a name with a power-up from the Super Mario series.
  • In the sub-game Megaton Punch in Kirby Super Star and its remake, some Starmen can be spotted in the crowd.
