|This article is about the mid-boss that gives the Burning ability. It is not to be confused with Bobo, the regular enemy variation, or Buboo, a mid-boss that gives the Bubble ability.|
Boboo is a mid-boss that has only appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It is actually a bigger version of Bobo. It has simple attacks. When attacking, it shoots forward to the other wall and crashes into it, leaving some embers that can be inhaled by Kirby. When defeated, it gives the Burning ability.
He gives the same ability as Efreeti in the previous game, and with a very similar boss fight.
Boboo is a walking flame with black, beady eyes and blueish feet, but whenever he is defeated or bumps into a wall, it reveals that it is actually a giant piece of crimson coal.
Boboo's name comes from the Japanese onomatopoeia for fire crackling, ボーボー (Bōbō).
