Bukiset is an enemy appearing only in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It is a small creature with a black torso and white hands and feet. It wears an oddly shaped, white helmet with two eye-like holes in its top. Below these holes is another opening, through which the Bukiset's actual, singular eye can be seen.

Bukisets are unique in that they may grant Kirby any Copy Ability in the game when he inhales and swallows them, depending on their method of attack and the weapon they wield.
