Cuphead Wiki

Pyro Heads are one of the enemies found in the Run 'N Gun level Rugged Ridge in Inkwell Isle Three.


As their name implies, Pyro Heads are disembodied heads on fire, or, floating fireballs with human like faces that float around the level. They have a very mischievous or sadistic expression.


Pyro Heads are found in the first and last section of Rugged Ridge and usually orbit around columns or platforms and are nigh-invincible. Fortunately, their pattern is very simple and predictable. Unfortunately, they could prove to be a hazard during the Cyclops chase sequence. If dealt 10 thousand damage, they stop moving.



  • Pyro Heads have the most health of any enemy in the game.
    • It is possible to shoot them enough until they are defeated, but rather than disappear, the Pyro Head simply floats in place and cannot hurt the player.
  • The Pyro Head resembles an enemy found in the forth area of a Disney's video game, called, Fantasia Genesis 1991. Which it's also a burning head that floats around changing its looking direction.
