Fire Lion is, hence the name, a lion that uses fire to its advantage and is a mini boss that appeared in 3 of Kirby's games, Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, and later in Kirby Super Star Ultra. Fire Lion attacks by charging at Kirby in a stream of fire, and also attacks by grabbing Kirby and scratching him, or trying to pounce on him. When Fire Lion pounces, a star will appear allowing Kirby to inhale and spit it back at Fire Lion, inflicting damage. In its original appearance, it looked very kitty-like, but later appearances drop the cute look in favor of a demonic appearance with a flame-colored mane and no pupils.
