The other half of the Putt/Ignus team, Putts usually wait at the top of a hill with Ignuses and push Ignuses down the slope just as Kirby passes by. Once Ignuses are gone, Putts are helpless.

Putt is an enemy that only appears in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.

Physical Appearance

Putt resembles a round green worm with a wide, puppet-like mouth, a small, curled tail, round black eyes, and a small yellow horn on its head. It constantly opens and closes its mouth, as if panting like a dog.


Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Putt makes its only appearance on Shiver Star. This enemy is always seen behind an orange boulder, which it pushes once Kirby is close enough. Since Putt is on a level higher than Kirby, caution is advised when approaching. After heaving its rock at Kirby, the Putt sits there, possibly laughing at others' demise. The rock must be avoided, as it cannot be inhaled and will roll down any slope. Putt gives no ability, and serves no purpose besides attempting to squash Kirby. It is also notable that this enemy is immune to Spark + Spark and the missiles from Bomb + Bomb will not home in on it.


Putt's name is derived directly from the word "putt," which describes the motion of lightly touching an object to set forth its motion.


  • The Prima strategy guide for Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is flawed; it states that Putts use Ignuses to attack, when they instead use orange boulders. These could probably be another form of Ignus, though.
