Walf appears to be a blue sea-turtle with added antennae on its head, making it somewhat resemble a beetle. Its head is peach-colored with a larger nose in Kirby's Return to Dream Land but is blue with a smaller nose in Kirby: Planet Robobot.
While Walf can be found on land, it instinctively marches to the nearest water source. It gracefully skims across the water's surface, paying no mind to Kirby. Despite this, Walf is not a harmless foe; Kirby will take damage if he collides with it.
Walf's name may be derived from the word waif, describing its childlike appearance.
- The early version of Walf had simpler pupils (which lacked irises) and a bald head with no blue cover over it. Walf also had a lighter shell.
