A Glire (ガルファイア, Galfire) is an enemy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary mode and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS's Smash Run mode.

Name origin[edit]

Glire's name is a combination of the words glare, referring to its wide open eyes, and fire, referring to its flame attack.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Glires debuted in Brawl's Subspace Emissary. They are wheel-like enemies with a central eye. They move around by rolling on floors, walls, and ceilings, although they will fall down if they flinch. When a player approaches it, a Glire will pause, open up, and spew fire out of its body. This attack only hits once, so shielding it allows a large lag time in which to attack. Like flame Jyks, Glires appear in caverns and ruins.

Glire's trophy in Brawl
An enemy shaped like a tire. It's protected by three black shells, but they're not so hard as to be impenetrable. The outermost shell is covered in mucus that lets it stick to surfaces as it rolls along walls and ceilings. The eye in its center is creepy. When it spots the player, it stops, sheds its outer layers, and spouts fire from its inner recesses.

In Smash Run[edit]

Glires return as enemies. Like in Brawl, they resist flame-based attacks and are weak to freezing attacks.


NTSC This rotating enemy will follow the terrain. The red one is called Glire. Should a fighter come too close, a blast of fire will erupt from Glire, damaging nearby foes. Glire has high stamina compared to Glice and Glunder, but it's very slow. It's especially vulnerable to ice attacks!
PAL If you get too close to a Glire, it'll stop, open its shell and unleash a fire attack. They deal more damage than Glunders and Glices, but they're also slower. You won't get a lot of stat boosts for defeating one, so just make life easy for yourself and exploit their weakness to ice attacks when you're taking them on.



  • Unlike the other two members of its enemy family, the Glire appears closed in its Brawl trophy.
