Bouncy, originally known as Bouncy Ty (either a pun on "Bouncy Toy", "Bouncy Tie", or simply a misspelling), is an enemy debuting in Kirby's Dream Land 2. She is a pink, springy, toy-like creature that wears a pale red ribbon, has two beady eyes and a red seat above her spring. Hence her name, Bouncy continually bounces, although sometimes she may leap forward attempting to harm Kirby with her spring. Bouncy gives no Copy Ability when inhaled.

Kirby's Block Ball[edit]

Bouncy appears as a common enemy in this game, and is worth 600 points when defeated. She also drops an Ability Changer, making this the only game in the series where Bouncy can provide a Copy Ability (albeit indirectly).

Kirby's Dream Land 3[edit]

Bouncy also appears in Kirby's Dream Land 3, where their behavior is basically the same. Like in Kirby's Dream Land 2, they are first seen in this game's version of Grass Land, but they are not very common here.

Kirby: Canvas Curse[edit]

Bouncy appears again in Kirby: Canvas Curse, behaving the same as in past installments.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

Bouncy from Halcandra.

After a long hiatus, Bouncy returned in Kirby's Return to Dream Land; her behavior hasn't changed. A new, uncommon enemy named Bouncy Sis is a bigger version of Bouncy that appears alongside their smaller counterparts, resembling the mid-boss from Kirby 64.

Additionally, there is a variant of the Bouncy that lives on Halcandra. It behaves the same, but has a black and white color motif. Their face is similar to Void Termina's.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Bouncy returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, but only appears in Dedede's Drum Dash as an obstacle to be avoided.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

Bouncy returns in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, behaving the same as in past installments. They can be easily defeated by Kirby's dash attack or Bandana Waddle Dee's spear.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Bouncy returns in Kirby: Planet Robobot, appearing in the Sub-Game Kirby 3D Rumble. They are distinguished from the other targets in that it can avoid projectiles when it bounces.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Bouncy returns as a common enemy in Kirby Star Allies. They can come in a variety of sizes and speeds. Big Bouncies also make their return, but only in Guest Star Adeleine & Ribbon - Artful Adventurers and Heroes in Another Dimension.

Trivia[edit]

  • Bouncy's top half, and Bouncy Sis' by extension, resembles Kirby greatly, except for the bow.
  • In Kirby's Block Ball, Bouncies can get knocked out of their spring, suggesting it is some sort of vehicle, not actually a part of their body.
