First, we'll need to build a state-of-the-art laboratory. Then, of course, we'll have to discuss my ridiculously exorbitant fee.

Doctor Moro is a monster who appears in the two-part Fossil Fools episode of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!.

Physical Appearance

Doctor Moro's monster form.

Doctor Moro is of the same species as Tiff and Tuff. He is dressed just like a scientist, has tufty gray hair and a gray mustache, and blue sunglasses. When he's ordering his minions to attack, Moro changes to be freaky-looking, having his hair stand straight up and his sunglasses turn eviler and growing small fangs and sharp claws in the process. Doctor Moro is also one of the few monsters who can talk.


Doctor Moro acts like an archetypical mad scientist, using his expertise on dinosaurs in order to create an army of dinousaur-like monsters by using the DNA of various denizens of Cappy Town. He also shows a similar mindset to those working to Nightmare Enterprises, as he states to King Dedede to build a state-of-the-art laboratory and then discuss his exorbitant fee.


Doctor Moro is a deranged mad scientist who is an expert on dinosaurs. He was sent by Nightmare Enterprises to help King Dedede fuel his new dinosaur obsession by cloning dinosaur DNA and building a theme park to prove that real dinosaurs do exist. However, Moro is secretly working to create an army of dinosaur monsters from the DNA of the people of Cappy Town, which look just like various of those inhabitants themselves. His secret intention also involves using Kirby's superior Star Warrior DNA to create the ultimate monster: Kirbysaurus. Doctor Moro eventually becomes freaky-looking when he's ordering his minions to attack. In the end, both Doctor Moro and his minions were destroyed by Crash Kirby.

Powers and Abilities

Dr. Moro's special ability, owning to his expertise on dinosaurs, is cloning dinosaur DNA and mixing it with other living beings' DNA. He uses needles, especially flying ones that look like mosquitoes, to do so. He conducts his experiments in a laboratory where he makes new dinosaurs in the likeness of the people he managed to take some genetic samples from.


I'm Doctor Moro. I came to your village when I heard about your great discovery. I've set up a new laboratory at the castle!

It would be foolish to destroy my laboratory.

Just one small DNA sample taken from a given subject and we can make an infinite number of monsters.

Thanks to your invaluable tip, Tiff, I have achieved what I believe to be my greatest creation. By using Star Warrior DNA, I have created the ULTIMATE MONSTER!! (laughs evilly)

  • Dr. Moro, like the episodes he's in, is based on Doctor Moreau from the novel "The Island of Doctor Moreau." His name is even pronounced the same way as the character, Doctor Moreau.
