    Hm... you sure Bomb Kirby's hat isn't just supposed to be one of those party popper things? Y'know, you pull on the string and it bursts open?

    Would you consider making a part 2 covering more of these hats? 😃

    Hey Gaijin. If you end up reading this, I'm fairly certain Kirby's bomb hat comes from Japanese party poppers. In super smash bros brawl, on the warioware stage, one of the mini games is "Pop!" Where a popper, shown with a long string (the ribbon) attached to a cone covered in colors has to be attacked. Upon getting hit, it explodes into confetti, much like kirby's bombs in return to dreamland.

    "From Kirby Super Star on the SNES 'til today, with Crystal Shards on the N64 being the exception"Everyone forgets Dream Land 3.

    lobsteros (Channel Lobster's Alt) I just noticed that those two are part of the Dark matter saga which is probably why both don't have the hats.

    Hey, um, GG? ..>.> I don't know if anyone has said this, but your second Coral a milk snake, as it's red on black, now the *first one* is a coral snake, red on yellow, black between yellow stripes, So is the second, I thought it was two pictures, not three, but Your third one at 6:15 is a milk snake..., the mimic that is Red on black, with yellow between black stripes...>.>;;

    And his rhyme was wrong too. It's red and yellow kill a fellow, red and black venom lack.

    The third picture is a king snake. 6:17 that one is a friend of Jack

    The bomb hat definitely looks far more like a part popper than the historical hats.Everything else, ok fine, makes sense. But that last one was definitely a stretch, the party popper is a much simpler explanation. Occam's razor therefore says it must be that instead.

  • Gyaku Banda

    Yeah it looks like a confetti popper

    Not to mention while I did enjoy the mention of the terra-cotta warriors, that picture is more tied to the anime depiction of Stone. It doesn’t really represent the ability in general, unless we start talking about Cleaning. No, it’s a ninja helmet because of the ninja trick of “turning into a rock or log to avoid damage”. If it sounds like a massive stretch, well it was, which is why it was changed into the cobble-cap it is today.
