Kirbycolors This article is about the enemy in Kirby Super Star. For other uses, see Capsule J (disambiguation).

Capsule J[1] (spelled Capsule-J on his Helper icon) is an enemy and Helper that in the Kirby series, appearing only in Kirby Super Star. It is one notable for being the only Helper omitted from the game's remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. It gives Kirby the Jet ability when inhaled. With help from its jet pack, Capsule J can hover around, though sometimes it may also use its jet pack as means of pursuing Kirby.

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, Capsule J is replaced by Capsule J2 both as an enemy and as the Helper for the Jet ability. The two enemies are very similar in form of attack.

Physical Appearance

Capsule J is a mechanical blue creature with white gloves and red feet. It has a bright green, visor-like casing, and a jet pack on its back which is attached by a ring-like band which hangs above its visor. It highly resembles a mechanical Waddle Doo with a jet pack on its back.

Capsule J2 has the same basic components, but a completely redesigned head.


Kirby Super Star

Capsule J appears as the Helper and the provider of the high-tech Jet ability. It hovers around aimlessly at first, but begins to zoom at Kirby after it sets its sights on him. The Helper version of Capsule J is cyan and the enemy versions are orange and the occasional green. Like most of the other Helpers, the Helper version of Capsule J can execute the same moves that its respective ability (in this case, Jet) can do. He can also shoot exhaust while underwater, however this will not propel him forward.

Capsule J's successor, Capsule J2, reprises the original Capsule J's role in Kirby Super Star Ultra.


  • Capsule J, Rolling Turtle, Togezo, and Bounder are currently the only enemies to have been replaced by other enemies in their respective game's remake.
  • Capsule J is the only helper exclusive to Kirby Super Star.
  • Capsule J's design heavily resembles Konami's TwinBee character.
