Battles in the Air are brewin', but if you have Coo, you'll be OK. Nruff and Nelly will be waiting for you.
— Instruction manual • Kirby's Dream Land 2

Nelly is a small boar-like animal who is an underling and friend of Nruff. Nelly first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 2 alongside Nruff as the bosses of the second level in the game, the Big Forest. During the battle, multiple Nellys would charge around the stage and plow into Kirby. Kirby could inhale them and shoot them back at Nruff to defeat him. In the anime, Nelly appears with Nruff as minor characters. The two live happily in Acore's roots.

Physical Appearance

Nelly is a small boar who bears much resemblance to her larger, stronger counterpart, Nruff. She has spiky brown fur with small white stripes running across her back. She sports no visible ears and unlike Nruff, always has her eyes open.

While Nelly only appeared as a one-time character in the games, Nruff's current depiction (not counting the anime) has elements of Nelly imbued in it. He has Nelly's stripes and small-stature, but retains his ears and eyes.
