Cappy is a minor enemy that appears in most games in the Kirby series, making its debut appearance in Kirby's Dream Land. It is a small, mushroom-like creature which moves by hopping about. In earlier titles, Cappy did not possess any limbs, but in later games, Cappy sports a pair of stubby arms. Unlike many other recurring enemies, Cappy has had few variations, and has never had more than a minor role in the games in which it appears.

Cappy's main method of attack is no more complicated than bumping into Kirby, which also hurts the Cappy in turn. If Kirby inhales Cappy, its cap is swallowed by him, revealing its face. Once without its cap, Cappy can be inhaled in turn, though it can also be defeated by other means, whether it has its cap or not. A more common method of defeating Cappy is to inhale its cap, and then spit the cap back at it.

Role in Kirby: Right Back at Ya![edit]

A group of Cappies of various shape and dress from an episode of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!
Main article: Cappy (anime)

In the anime series Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, Cappies make up the primary intelligent race of creatures that reside in Dream Land. Here, they are portrayed without their mushroom caps, and instead come in various shapes and sizes and sporting various articles of clothing and hair/facial hair. Several hundred Cappies live in the sole established settlement of Dream Land called Cappy Town, which is led by Mayor Len Blustergas and subservient to Castle Dedede.

While most of the Cappy villagers are not explicitly named, several of them have more distinct roles and names and are recurring characters in the show. Examples include the aforementioned Mayor Len, Chief Bookem, Professor Curio, and Mabel, to name a few.

Profiles[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U trophy[edit]

Image Description Found in
CappyTrophyWiiU.png "This enemy looks rather like a mushroom...until Kirby tries to inhale him, that is--then his cap comes off and reveals the true form he's so cunningly been concealing. It might not be much of a surprise these days, though--Cappy's been around since the very first Kirby game. He's more like an old friend than an enemy at this point." Kirby's Dream Land

Trivia[edit]

  • If Cappy is moved or defeated while its cap is still in the air, the cap will fall to the ground and then disappear. If the Cappy has not been defeated, it will be unable to produce a new cap at this point.
