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 blue plates above and underneath her head and Kirby-like eyes and blushes. She has blue spiked balls for shoulder pads, giant pink balls for 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, VS. Iron Mam, 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.
