Kirby Wiki

Those Stumpees can really be scary when they're rolling right toward you. Look for the wedge chopped out of the Stumpee. Squeeze into the gap to let it pass.

Stumpee is a large enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack.

Physical Appearance

Stumpee is a giant segment of a log with a triangular slice cut out of it. It has a cylindrical nose, angry black eyes, and a jagged frown.


Kirby Mass Attack

Stumpee appears exclusively in Stage 8 of Green Grounds. It is encountered throughout the final part of the stage, usually in narrow passageways. It rolls forward in a set direction, wrecking everything in its path, including Metal Blocks. As such, any Kirbys crushed under the enemy are instantly KO'd. The only way to survive Stumpee is to either go above it or fit inside the log's gap as it rolls. Stumpee is invincible and cannot be defeated.


Stumpee is derived from the word "stump," referencing the fact that Stumpee consists of a tree stump.

Its Japanese name, ゴロスタン (Gorosutan), comes from the onomatopoeia for a large rolling object, ゴロゴロ/ごろごろ (Gorogoro); and stump, スタンプ (sutanpu)


  • Stumpee may be six years old, as it has six rings.
  • Unlike other variants Whispy Woods, Stumpee is a tree stump instead of being an entire tree. It is also one of the only Whispy Woods variants whose name doesn't contain "Woods" in it.
