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. It is a pink, springy, toy-like creature that wears a pale red ribbon, has two beady eyes and a red seat above its spring. Hence its name, Bouncy continually bounces, although sometimes it may leap forward attempting to stomp Kirby. 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. It 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]

DL3 Bouncy Sprite.png 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.

In later stages, drawings of Bouncies appear on certain walls, alongside drawings of Waddle Dees and Bronto Burts. These can become sentient to attack Kirby. After coming to life, Bouncy drawings function exactly like regular ones.

Kirby Mass Attack[edit]

Bouncy appears in the Kirby Mass Attack Sub-Game Kirby Brawlball, acting as a source of points in the upper portion of the main board. There are three of them lined up, worth 10 points the first time they are hit, with the value incrementing by 10 each subsequent hit.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land[edit]

A Bouncy from Halcandra

After a long hiatus, Bouncy returned in Kirby's Return to Dream Land; its 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.

Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe[edit]

Bouncy makes an appearance in Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe as a hazard, bouncing atop certain drums in stages. King Dedede will need to avoid it while moving forward.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

Quote1.png Everyone knows the only reason Bouncys like to bounce so high is 'cause they like the view from up in the air. Things just seem more...peaceful up there. Every day is a good day to Bouncys. No one's gonna keep 'em down! Quote2.png
— Bouncy's Figurine description

Bouncy returns in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, behaving the same as in past installments. They can be easily defeated by Kirby's Touch Dash or Waddle Dee's spear. They are worth 100 points and 3 Point Stars when defeated.
