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.

Kirby's Dream Land

Cappy makes its debut appearance in the very first Kirby game, appearing only in Green Greens. In the Extra Game, Cappy is replaced by Blopper, a similar enemy disguised as a cake and possessing the ability to throw icing projectiles.

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Cappy returns in these games, appearing in color for the first time. Its appearance and behavior are unchanged, though it does manage to appear in a fair few stages.

Kirby's Pinball Land

Cappy makes an appearance as a bumper in the upper portion of Wispy-Woods Land. Here, bumping into Cappy the first time removes its cap and conveys 600 points. Bumping it a second time removes it from the field and conveys 1200 points. A short time after being defeated, Cappy returns.

Kirby's Dream Land 2

Cappy appears in this game, largely unchanged from its previous roles in Kirby's Dream Land and Kirby's Adventure.

Main article: Cappy (anime)

In the anime, most Cappies are allies to Kirby, and live in a village called Cappy Town. Cappies include Mabel, Curio, Chief Bookums and Mayor Len. Strangely, none of the Cappies in this town wear a cap.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U trophy description

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

  • 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.
