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.
Customer Service is a major villain in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. He is Nightmare's confidante, top salesperson, and second-in-command, responsible for coordinating the defense of Nightmare's Fortress and funding Nightmare's operations through the sale of Demon Beasts. He is immaculately polite in the Japanese version, but brash and still as manipulative in the English dub. King Dedede and Escargoon acquires Demon Beasts through him to get rid of Kirby, as they do not have much choice othewise, and Customer Service leverages his position to make absurd profits and has Dedede deep in debt to Nightmare Enterprises. Although English and Japanese versions slightly differ, he can be assumed to have perished after the final assault by the Halberd on Nightmare's Fortress.
