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.
Nightmare's operations are funded by his sales team including Customer Service, his No.2 and right-hand man, who makes Nightmare Enterprises a hefty profit from selling Demon Beasts to clients for their own needs.
Most of the time, enemies in the Kirby series refer to regular enemies. These are any common characters hostile towards Kirby and have less-than-significant role in the plot.
Squeakers (or just Squeaks) are the underlings of Squeak Squad in Kirby: Squeak Squad. They appear wherever a large treasure chest is and hinder Kirby's progress so one of the three higher-ranking members of Squeak Squad can catch up to Kirby and take the treasure before he does. They give no copy ability when inhaled, and Ghost Kirby cannot possess these special enemies, either.
The Kirby series is not known for its complicated characters, but there are special ones just the same. These are characters who defy classification into straight hero or villain, and can neither be enemy nor friend to Kirby, or appear to be one or the other.
A solitary character and one of few words, he can be friend or foe depending on what he seeks. His plans are as unpredictable as his appearances on the battlefield, which presents a powerful force to be reckoned with. Add in the fact that he zealously guards his true looks and his code of honour, Meta Knight is the character of intrigue that everyone has come to know.
