Pyrobots[1] are Ready-Bots[2] that first appeared in Donkey Kong Country Returns. As their name states, Pyrobots use flamethrowers, which can hurt Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. Pyrobots come in two colors, yellow and red.

The yellow Pyrobots have to be jumped on three times to be defeated. They can also be taken out with barrels.

A red Pyrobot

The red Pyrobots are much more durable, being resistant to every kind of direct attack that the Kongs make. However, jumping on one can immobilize it temporarily. The only way to defeat a red Pyrobot is to throw a barrel or a Buckbomb at one. Both kinds of Pyrobots are only found in the Factory area of Donkey Kong Island.

In Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D the red Pyrobots in Robo Factory shoot fire steams out of their heads while the yellow ones act like normal Pyrobots.
