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.
Wheelie is a wheel with an eye, known for giving Kirby the Wheel ability and its helper which gets Kirby around very quickly. Wheel Kirby and Wheelie attacks the same way - by ramming straight into things. Unique to Wheel's Helper, Kirby can ride on it as a Wheelie Rider while having another Copy Ability altogether.
