 This box: view  talk  edit 

Chip is a common round fuzzy enemy which appears in a select number of Kirby games. It is a bouncy, limbless, round creature with yellow fur, two large round black eyes, a cherry expression, and a white-tipped tail resembling that of a red fox.

Chip moves by jumping around, periodically hesitating on the ground for a short while in-between each bound. It attacks via collision, harming both Kirby and itself in the process. Chip does not have much health, is vulnerable to all attacks and does not give a Copy Ability when swallowed. However, Chip tends to be found in large groups with other members of its kin, making them somewhat more threatening than enemies which go solo.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

KatAMChip.png Chip made its first appearance in this title, as a commonly-seen enemy in the Mirror World. Chip can be found in every major region except for Candy Constellation.

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

Chip returns in this title, completely unchanged from its Amazing Mirror appearance. It is still relatively common, and can still be found in large numbers in the stages it appears in.


Chip can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

In-game appearance from Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Chip returns in its first 3-D appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It attacks by tackling Kirby, and will often jump between the foreground and background to do so.

Kirby: Planet Robobot[edit]

Chip makes an appearance in Kirby: Planet Robobot along with its larger cousin, Big Chip. Chip is one of the few enemies in this game with no cyborg attachments.

Kirby's Blowout Blast[edit]

Chip is one of the common enemies which Kirby must dispatch in this game. Its characteristic bounding is its main trait here.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Chip returns in this title, behaving much as it did in Planet Robobot. This marks its first appearance on a home console game outside of Virtual Console.
