|“||You two will never be one again.”|
|— Slice n' Splice • Kirby: Right Back at Ya!|
Slice n' Splice is a sentient and seemingly intelligent robot that holds two special weapons-- a Sun Rod and a Moon Rod (both in the likeness of Mr. Shine & Mr. Bright).
Appearing in the 9th episode "The Fofa Factor", it was purchased from Nightmare Enterprises by Dedede. It was revealed late in the episode that Slice n' Splice was the one that created Lololo and Lalala by using the Moon Rod to split a monster called Fofa in two. The robot was destroyed along with its rods when Cutter Kirby severed its left arm before following up with Final Cutter, which sliced it right in half.
Slice n' Splice is a light green, somewhat insect-like, four legged robot. His upper body is rectangular with two thin arms sticking out of the sides. He has large, reddish-orange eyes with green pupils. On his metal limbs, he has black gloves and black shoes. He wields the Sun Rod in his left hand and the Moon Rod in his right. The two rods bear resemblance to Mr. Shine & Mr. Bright, which marks their only major appearance in the anime.
Powers and Abilities
While Slice n' Splice isn't that dangerous itself, he makes up for it with his weapons; the Moon Rod can split a foe into different parts or male and female halves, and the Sun Rod can put them back together—with their anatomy mismatched if Slice n' Splice or his client so wishes. He is also able to run at high speeds as a result of his four legs
His name comes from the fact that he cuts enemies to pieces and then reassembles them. KittariHattari is Japanese for cut and paste.

- When the moon rod splits Kirby, King Dedede, and Escargoon into male and female counterparts, the colors of the new characters are always green and orange.
- However, Lololo and Lalala are blue and red, rather than green and orange
- Slice n' Splice is the first monster that can talk.
- During the intro of how Fofa was created, Slice n' Splice is only seen with the Moon Rod, suggesting that it is his primary weapon.
- It is mostly likely that the Sun Rod is just an extra weapon.
- When Dedede ordered Slice n' Splice to 'sick' Escargoon, the monster attacked both of them. This seems to indicate that Slice n' Splice can make mistakes.
- His name is a play on the phrase, "Slice and Dice."
- When Slice n' Splice perishes, he takes his rods with him. That is why the Sun Rod breaks after he blows up.
