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.
