Trivia

  • Flame Galboros's attacks are very similar to that of Pyribbit in the fact that it exhales fire through its nostrils in a circle motion, spits blobs of lava, and even engulfing itself in fire and jumping to create spreading fiery rings.
  • Despite being a larger version of Galbo, the enemy itself does not appear in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Because of that, Flame Galboros is the only member of the Galboros family to appear in the game.
