Kirby: Squeak Squad artwork
Acchi is a red creature that is greater in length than height. It has brown eyes, a tan underbelly, a small mouth, stubby arms, and two-toed feet. Flaps of skin resembling fangs hang on either side of its mouth. Acchi's back is constantly ablaze.
Acchi will sit in one spot, waiting for Kirby to approach. The enemy attacks by spitting fireballs, which move in a arc. These burn on the ground for a few seconds before going out. Acchi can spit them upwards in a parabola or straight at Kirby.
Acchi's name is derived from the Japanese phrase "acchi," which is often said when something is very hot, and explains why it shoots out flames. However, Acchi sneezes its flames out, so it might also be a pun on "achoo," the sound made when one sneezes.
- Acchi is one of the few characters in the Kirby series to have toes. Others include Daroach (and Dark Daroach), Sir Slippy, Bonkers, Storo, Box Boxer, Gaw Gaw, Moonja, and Gao Gao.
