One of Kirby's six Animal Friends. Rick is a roly-poly hamster, almost as large as Nago, and equally roly-poly cat. Rick made his debut in Kirby's Dream Land 2, and like all Animal Friends, he shares and augments Kirby's Copy Abilities. Rick's personal relationship is with his love interest, Pick. Rick appears in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, living beneath the roots of Acore the great tree, but his relationship with Kirby isn't what it was in the preceding games. Kirby and Rick are rarely seen together, and directly interact even less, but they are still friends nonetheless.
Noddy is a sleepy enemy as harmless as they look, but the Copy Ability they give can be anything but. Sleep renders Kirby completely vulnerable for several seconds instead of being useful like the other copy abilities, making the Star Spit attack the most viable option after inhaling a Noddy. Noddies are featured in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! in the episodes The Pillow Case and Flower Power.
