Bonkers (ボンカース, Bonkers) is an enemy in the Kirby series.
Bonkers debuted in Kirby's Adventure as a mini-boss, and frequently appeared in later games with the same role. His attacks are similar to the ones he uses in Smash Run. He is the most common source of Kirby's Hammer Copy Ability.
In Smash Run
Bonkers appears as a rare and powerful enemy. Bonkers has higher health than a regular enemy, and can sometimes appear as a "target enemy," who can be considered a mini-boss. He cannot be knocked back, but his attacks have severe start up and ending lag. Bonkers's actions include:
All of these attacks deal high damage and knockback. He drops high stat boosts if defeated and is one of the few enemies able to drop a large star that boosts every stat (+100 each). If defeated as an event boss, he will consistently drop four very large stats boosts which increase by 200 a specific stat. Bonkers also appears as an enemy in the Kirby-themed "Vs. Enemy Team" final battle of Smash Run.
Bonkers appears as a spirit for the game's Spirit mode.
