|“||Found in caves and deserts, Boneheads' simple attack is to fly over Kirby and then drop. More of a nuisance than a threat, you can easily avoid them.”|
|— Description • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards Official Strategy Guide (Prima)|
Bonehead is an enemy in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards that doesn't give an ability when inhaled. They are called Bonehead because of their physical appearance and possibly their stupidity: they fly off cliffs or into Kirby's attacks.
Bonehead appears to be a white skull with bat wings and black eyes and it attacks by flying around and falling on top of Kirby when he's near it or under it. If Kirby isn't near Bonehead, it will just shake and hop on the floor.
Bonehead's name is derived from their physical appearance, being a skull with wings.
Its Japanese name, シャレバード (Sharebādo), is a portmanteau of the Japanese word for skull, しゃれこうべ (Sharekōbe); and the word bird, バード (Bādo).
