The Helirin (ヘリリン Heririn) is a machine with long rotor blades that appears in the game Kuru Kuru Kururin. It appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Kururin sets out in this specialized, spinning craft to rescue his missing family. Its inventor, Teacher Hare, trains Kururin in the art of controlling it.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee


The Helirin appears as a trophy in Melee. Due to translation issues, it was mistakenly named "Heririn".

Trophy Description

Kururin sets off in his specialized helicopter to rescue his siblings who have lost their way somewhere among ten worlds. The helicopter is fitted with an enormous blade, which propels the machine forward by slowly rotating. The mazes that Kururin must navigate are narrow and filled with all kinds of strange obstacles.

  • Kuru Kuru Kururin (Japan Only)

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

In Brawl, the Helirin appears (rarely) as an Assist Trophy. When summoned, the Helirin will fly to a certain part of the stage. The characters can stand on the Helirin and use it as a moving platform. It stays out for a rather short length of time, rotating slowly all the while. Presumably, the craft is being controlled by Kururin himself.

Trophy Description

The Helirin Trophy

A unique helicopter that flies with long, slowly rotating wings. If the wings strike walls or obstacles, the Helirin takes damage and loses hearts. The wings normally spin clockwise, but the rotation can be reversed by touching springs. There are many areas that require this technique. The Helirin can be customized by picking up and using a variety of items.

  • Contrary to both trophy descriptions, Kuru Kuru Kururin was released in Europe as well as Japan.
