Flare is a yellow sphere with a very scowling glare and white horns with red stripes. It has red facial tattoos surrounding its eyes for decor and to make it look menacing.
Flare appears exclusively in Volcano Valley. It has a fireball that revolves around its body, which discourages the Kirbys from attacking it. The enemy spits fireballs at the heroes in an attempt to set them on fire; if the attack hits, the flaming Kirbys must douse themselves with water to avoid burning to a crisp. The player must have good timing and a few Kirbys to defeat the enemy unscathed.
When Flare touches a Water bubble, it becomes immobilized and easier to defeat, in a similar manner to that of Boh boh and Fire Snoozroot. Flare illuminates darkness, meaning the Kirbys can use it as a torch in one particular area.
