Iron Mam is a mid-boss in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Super Star.

Physical Appearance

Iron Mam somewhat resembles an armored baby, with two gold-gilded blue plates above and underneath her head and Kirby-like eyes and blushes. She has blue spiked balls for shoulder pads, large, circular hands, pink metallic shoes, and a pink bow atop her head.


Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra

Iron Mam attacks by using the two fist-like balls at her sides. She gives the Fighter ability when swallowed. Sometimes, she'll jump and make a star at her front which Kirby can inhale (though the star only appears in the remake).

Iron Mam appears in her own stage, Enemy Stage, in the Dyna Blade sub-game.

Iron Mam also appears as the final competitor in the Megaton Punch sub-game.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Iron Mam appears as a keychain in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

Kirby Star Allies

While Iron Mam does not appear in Kirby Star Allies, there is a bigger version called Grand Mam which appears as a boss.


  • Iron Mom was likely named Iron Mam (likely pronounced "Iron Ma'am") in the English translation of Kirby Super Star Ultra to make a pun on Iron Man, a Marvel Comics super hero.
    • Notably, Iron Man is the protagonist of his franchise wearing a metal suit. Iron Mam's face bears a striking resemblance to Kirby's—Kirby is obviously the main protagonist of the series—and Iron Mam wears a metal suit.
  • Iron Mam seems to resemble Waddle Dee (or even Kirby) with armor.
  • Jukid, another mid-boss in Kirby Super Star, acts very similarly in attack pattern and have disembodied hands.
  • Iron Mam wears red shoes that resemble those of Meta Knight in all of her in-game appearances and in Kirby Super Star artwork; however, in her Kirby Super Star Ultra artwork, she appears to have red feet that that are the similar to those Kirby possesses.
