"Its projectiles bounce on the ground. Quite useful on slopes." - In-game menu description.
You receive the fireball as a gift from Santa after you retrieve his house key in Grasstown and enter his house. It has unlimited use of fireballs, and when aimed upwards, it only falls back down to the ground with no real effect.
|1||Shoot two fireballs at maximum||4|
Shoot three fireballs at maximum
|3||Shoot four fireballs at maximum||6|
- By not trading the Polar Star for Curly's Machine Gun, later when you're sent to the Labyrinth, you can exchange both your Polar Star and Fireball to Chaba in the Labyrinth Shop as an upgrade for the Snake.
- The Fireball is the only weapon to be affected by gravity as it doesn't stay afloat in the desired direction, and falls to the ground when used.
- Getting it is required through the game, as Chako will not activate the Jellies until after she sees that you've met Santa.
