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.
Storo is the "brawn" of the Squeak Squad, a gang of treasure hunting mice. He is sometimes fought as a miniboss at the end of some stages in the game, and, due to his huge size, he can sometimes be very difficult to take down. Neither Storo nor any of his weapons can be inhaled and thus he gives no Copy Ability.
