Kabu is a regular enemy in the Kirby series of games, but has a pivotal role in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! as Kirby's ally. In the anime, Kabu is an extremely old stone statue, resilient even to bombardment by Destrayers, and serves as a recovery center for Star Warriors and damaged Warp Stars. Tiff hid Kirby's Warp Star inside Kabu after finding a perfectly-fitting slot on a pedestal, and only Meta Knight and Tuff know the place besides herself. Kabu is responsible for sending out the Warp Star to Kirby when Tiff calls for it, and repairing it to full strength after being damaged by Air Riders.
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.
