Burnin' Leo (or Burning Leo) is a enemy appearing in both Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. Burnin' Leo is round in shape and has fire-like hair that he constantly holds on to. He gives the Fire ability when eaten, and is also the Helper for the Fire ability.
As a helper, he has dark violet-blue skin, green shoes, and small blue hands. He wears a green headband which holds a bright red gem in the middle of it. Both the headband and his flaming hair look a lot like Fire Kirby's hat. As an enemy, Burnin' Leo is a salmon-pink color with black colored accessories.
Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star UltraEdit
Burnin' Leo first appeared in Super Star as a enemy and a Helper. Burnin' Leo has less strength than the other helpers, but his vitality is strong. Like all other Helpers, Burnin' Leo possesses all the attacks Fire Kirby can use. The enemy version spits out fire balls that slightly home in on Kirby and can occasionally breath fire. They first appeared in a level in Spring Breeze, Float Islands.
In Kirby Super Star Ultra, Burnin' Leo is virtually unchanged from the original, aside from having dark blue skin as opposed to light blue skin. A green-colored Burnin' Leo with purple shoes is playable in Helper to Hero.
