Rolling Turtle is a mid-boss in Kirby's Adventure that gives the Throw ability when inhaled. Rolling Turtle essentially provided more of a challenge than other mid-bosses.

Physical Appearance

Rolling Turtle is a turtle with boxing-like gloves, and a shell that rises above its body. For whatever reason, Rolling Turtle has teeth that resemble a beaver's teeth. Although he is green in most of the levels he is seen in, a red variation appears in the hidden Mid-Boss All-Stars in Rainbow Resort of Kirby's Adventure.


Kirby's Adventure

Rolling Turtle's attacks include jumping, rolling into Kirby, and throwing Rolling Turtle Jrs. When it grabs Kirby, it either spins then throws Kirby against the wall or jumps and lands on Kirby. If it rolls into Kirby, it will grab him and throw him across the screen.

A red variation appears in the hidden Mid-Boss All-Stars in Rainbow Resort. The red version is very aggressive and harder to defeat.

In Kirby's Adventure’s remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Rolling Turtle was replaced with Phan Phan for unknown reasons.



  • Rolling Turtle, Capsule-J, Togezo, Bounder, and Blopper are currently the only enemies to have been replaced by other enemies in their game's remake. Additionally, Rolling Turtle is the only mid-boss among the enemies have been replaced.
