|“||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.”|

Bouncy (Bouncy Ty in Kirby's Dream Land 2) is an enemy character resembling some sort of pink, springy, toy-like creature with a bow on its head. 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 abilities when inhaled.
Bouncy appears in Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Block Ball, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Kirby: Canvas Curse, Kirby Mass Attack, and Kirby's Return to Dream Land though her behavior is exactly the same in each one. In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, a giant Bouncy called Big Bouncy also appears as a mid-boss near the end of Pop Star Stage 2.
- The top of Bouncy remotely resembles UFO Kirby.
- When a Bouncy is hit in Kirby's Block Ball, it is knocked off of its spring and is shown as being a pink spherical creature, suggesting that the spring isn't actually part of them, 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."
