Poppy Bros Sr. (Kirby)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki

Poppy Bros Sr. is a major character boss in the Kirby series. He first appeared as a miniboss in Kirby's Dream Land, and several other games after, but he was intentionally created to suck.

"Hiya, Kirby! Want a Bomb Sandwich?"-Poppy Bros. Sr., Kirby's Avalanche/Ghost Trap

Why He Sucks

  1. His attacks are lame and easy to dodge; you can just dash dance if he tries to get close to you and inhale his bombs when he throws them and then shoot them back at him.
  2. Speaking of his attacks, he only has 3 of them; Throwing a bomb (3 of them in later games), Dashing forward with his foot to kick Kirby, and Constantly just jumping left and right like a maniac.
  3. He is lazily made; you go grab a Poppy Bros. Jr, make it big and you get him. This is also similar to Mega Goomba from New Super Mario Bros., being literally a giant Goomba.
  4. He never appears in the 3D games, other than appearing as a Keychain in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, but still.
  5. His pre-Super Star design is VERY lazy, thankfully his design changed in Kirby Super Star.
  6. Wasted Potential: He could have better attacks, like Fiery Bombs that set the ground on fire after they land, or Egg Bombs that hatch into Poppy Bros. Jrs upon landing.
  7. He can actually be defeated without any damage since he is an Unchallenging Boss.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. His design is somewhat cute despite being poorly made.
  2. In Kirby's Avalanche, he wants to offer Kirby a Bomb Sandwich, probably because he thinks Kirby is hungry, so he is probably trying to be nice.
  3. In Kirby's Adventure and its remake, he grants the Crash Ability when inhaled, which is AWESOME.
