In Kirby's Dream Course, the second player plays as Keeby in multiplayer games, and he has identical abilities to Kirby. As he is not seen outside of Kirby's Dream Course's multiplayer mode, he is a somewhat obscure character in the Kirby series.
Yellow Kirby, however, has appeared in Kirby series spin-offs and sub-games. Although the name "Keeby" has never been applied to this yellow Kirby, it is possible that the yellow Kirby is Keeby. If so, it is likely that Keeby has also appeared in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Kirby Air Ride, Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, Kirby: Squeak Squad, Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Kirby Super Star Ultra, and Kirby's Return to Dream Land - all as an alternate color.
- Keeby's coloration may be a reference to the fact that Shigeru Miyamoto initially wished for Kirby to be yellow, although HAL Labs eventually settled on Masahiro Sakurai's preference of pink.
- In Japan, Keeby's name is spelled "Kiibi." It is a portmanteau of the color yellow (kiiro), and Kirby's name (Kābī).
