Hibanamodoki is a character appearing in the game Kirby's Dream Land 3. They appear in the first level of Cloudy Park. The Hibanamodokis want Kirby and Rick (or Coo) to use the Clean ability to clean them. If Kirby and Rick (or Coo) clean all of the flowers, Kirby will earn a Heart Star at the end of the level.

Physical Appearance

Hibanamodoki is a pink flower with a yellow center. However, when dirty (i.e. not cleaned) it is a grayish-black color. It has a green stem and leaves.


Hibanamodoki's name comes from ヒバナ/ひばな/火花 (hibana), which can translate to Fire Flower (火 means "fire" and 花 means "flower"), and モドキ/もどき/擬き (modoki), which can translate to "fake" or correspond to the prefix "pseudo-." Its name effectively means Pseudo Fire Flower, referencing how it appears visually similar to the Fire Flower from the Super Mario series. Fire Flower's Japanese name in the Super Mario series, however, is ファイアフラワー (Faia Furawā).
