Bowby is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It yields no Copy Ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Bowby resembles a bow with two angry eyes and a smug grin that floats in mid-air. Later, in Halcandra and the Item Challenge, it appears as the Halcan Bowby to fit with the planet's industrial theme. Other than this, it is no different from its Planet Popstar variation.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land

When Kirby walks underneath Bowby, it shoots an arrow straight down in hopes of skewering him.

Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition

Bowby appears in the New Challenge Stages in Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition as well. It appears in the Spark Challenge, the Fighter Combat Chamber, and Magolor Race 1 and 3. Halcan Bowby appears in the Normal Challenge and Magolor Race 3.


Bowby's name is derived from bow, a tool used to shoot arrows. This explains its appearance and attack.


  • If Bomb Kirby uses the Drop Bomb attack on a Bowby, it will fall to the ground before being defeated.
