Ado is a minor character making her only appearance in the SNES game Kirby's Dream Land 3. She is a young human girl who came to Pop Star to study art.[1] Ado serves as the Boss of Cloudy Park.

In Kirby's Dream Land 3

Ado is faced down at the end of Cloudy Park. Using her giant canvas, she paints enemies that will battle Kirby for her. She summons Ice Dragon, Sweet Stuff, Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright, and Kracko, all of which are bosses in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and attack the same way, but with significantly less health. After Kirby defeats them, Ado comes at him with a paintbrush, at which point one Slide or Air Pellet and she'll be done for. Ado will also be taken out even if she manages to hit Kirby.

After Kirby uses the Heart Stars to purge the area of Dark Matter's influence, he can come back to see Ado, who will be much friendlier. She will paint a number of different things at random, then erase them. These paintings include:

Ado or Adeleine

Ado runs out of options at the end of the fight, charging Kirby hoping to do some damage with her brush.

After the release of Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards for the Nintendo 64, there was much debate about her relationship to Adeleine, who appears to be the same character but her appearance is slightly altered to fit the style of the other characters from that game. Popular theories are that they are twins or Ado is Adeleine's nickname. The Japanese Kirby 20th anniversary encyclopedia addresses this, and heavily implies the latter.[1] Strangely, the English version of said encyclopedia does not mention the name "Ado" at all, further supporting it.
