|“||Everyone knows the only reason Bouncys like to bounce so high is 'cause they like the view from up in the air. Things just seem more... peaceful up there. Every day is a good day to Bouncys. No one's gonna keep 'em down!”|

Bouncy (Bouncy Ty in Kirby's Dream Land 2) is an enemy character resembling some sort of pink, springy, toy-like creature with a delightful red bow on its head. She is a simple foe who hasn't changed at all since her debut, neither visually nor behaviorally.
Bouncy appears in Kirby's Dream Land 2. True to her name she continually bounces, sometimes leaping forward with each bounce or sometimes just hopping in place. She doesn't give any Copy Ability when inhaled.
This game set the precedent for how Bouncy would behave in all games moving forward.
Bouncy appears as an enemy in Kabula's and Brobo's stages, as well as King Dedede's Castle. She remains in one place, constantly bouncing. She drops a Changer item when defeated. Bouncy also appears in the "border line cleared" animation. She bounces directly behind Broom Hatter.
In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, a similar large-scale version of Bouncy called Bouncy Sis appears alongside her smaller counterpart. In addition to serving as a regular enemy in Main Mode, Bouncy appears in the Water Challenge of Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Similarly, she appears in the New Challenge Stages in Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition as well.
While Bouncy does not appear in Main Mode, she acts as an enemy in the Dedede's Drum Dash sub-game (as well as the downloadable Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe). She simply bounces up and down on a drum. King Dedede must super jump over her to avoid damage.
Bouncy appears in this game as an enemy and as a figurine.
|“||Instead of attacking, Bouncys bounce up and and down in your path. Time their bounces so you can easily pass underneath or over them. If you want to destroy them, do so from a midair jump—Bouncys spend more time in the air than they do on the ground.”|

- The top of Bouncy remotely resembles UFO Kirby.
- When a Bouncy is hit in Kirby's Block Ball, she is knocked off of her spring and is shown as being a pink spherical creature, suggesting that the spring isn't actually part of her, but is instead a transport of sorts.
- Bouncy has three shown segments on the spring except for Kirby's Dream Land 2's artwork, where there are four segments shown.
- In Kirby's Dream Land 2, Bouncy is called Bouncy Ty. This could be a mistranslation of "Bouncy Toy."
