Flame Feeder is a fiery monster ordered by King Dedede to entertain tourists in the 48th episode Tourist Trap.

General Information

In its original form, it resembles a small orb with a small flame inside it. However, when Dedede tosses it into the volcano during the tour, it quickly absorbs the lava and turns into a large jellyfish-like creature. Flame Feeder goes on a rampage, hurling globs of lava at the tourists. Kirby comes to the defense of two fallen tourists and becomes Fire Kirby by inhaling its flames, while Tiff calls the Warp Star to help Kirby. Kirby flies around Flame Feeder and gets a clear shot at him. Kirby's fire only strengthens it, however, and it knocks Kirby off the Warp Star. Thinking ahead, Tiff convinces the tourists to throw some ice cubes to Kirby from one of the thermoses she made them bring with them. Kirby gets the Ice ability by inhaling the ice cubes and freezes Flame Feeder, which in turn destroys it.
