Nearly always teamed with Putts, Ignuses roll down hills at Kirby, crushing him if he's too slow to move. Don't touch Ignus after he's stopped rolling—he can still damnage you, just like Splinter.

Ignus is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It doesn't grant any Copy Ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Ignus resembles a gray or dark brown igneous rock.


Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Ignus is found in the fourth stages of both Aqua Star and Neo Star. Its only method of attack is just falling from the sky to land on Kirby. Kirby can carry an Ignus above his head to protect himself from other Ignuses.


Ignus's name is a diminutive of the word "igneous." Its name may also be derived from the Latin word "ignis," meaning fire.


  • Despite being a volcanic rock itself, Ignus gives neither the Fire nor the Stone ability.
  • The Prima strategy guide for Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is flawed; it mistakes Ignus for Putt's boulder, and refers to the real Ignuses as simply volcanic rocks.
