Whippy is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It yields the Whip ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Whippy is an orange and red tiger-like enemy with a long tail and no visible appendages. It has blue eyes and wears a permanent scowl.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, and Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Whippy is first introduced in Raisin Ruins, and appears in many subsequent worlds thereafter. It sits in idly one spot, flicking its tail. When Kirby approaches the enemy, it swings its tail around momentarily. After this delay, it aims at the hero and cracks its tail like a whip.

Whippy appears in the Whip Challenge.

In Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, Whippy appears in the New Challenge Stages mode, specifically in the Whip and Smash Challenges.

Whippy also appears in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Only a single Whippy appears in the game, located in Stage 7 of Access Ark. The source of the Whip ability is now greatly attributed to Wester, an enemy that debuted in Kirby: Planet Robobot.
