Chuckie is an enemy which was introduced in Kirby's Dream Land. It resembles a simple cartoon face with two large circular eyes which are looking in different directions, and a wide mouth with a big tongue sticking out at all times. Chuckie is known to bound back and forth from boxes, and can hurt Kirby on contact.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

In Kirby's Dream Land, Chuckie is found exclusively in the Castle Lololo stage. It can be found rapidly bouncing various elements of the stage that resemble ? Boxes from the Mario series - popping out of the box for a moment before going back in again. While it is out, Kirby can inhale or otherwise attack it.

In Extra Game, Chuckie is replaced by Hurly.

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

In Kirby's Pinball Land, Chuckie (known here as Chucky[1]) appears on the third level of the Kracko Land stage. It bounces back and forth while Mr. Bright is out and is worth 1000 points when hit, though it cannot be hit in the middle of its bounce. If hit three times, it transforms into a Maxim Tomato. It transforms into Hurly when Mr. Shine is out.

Kirby's Block Ball[edit]

Chuckie last appeared in Kirby's Block Ball, serving as a common enemy worth 300 points when defeated.

Debut episode D'Preciation Day
 This box: view  talk  edit 

Chuckie appears as a monster in the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! episode D'Preciation Day. In this episode, it is sent along as a "gift" for Kirby from Night Mare Enterprises against King Dedede's instructions for a change and without his knowledge. Chuckie attacks by jumping out of its box and striking Kirby with its head and with the box. If Kirby attempts to inhale Chuckie, it can hide in the box to avoid being swallowed up. Kirby ends up defeating Chuckie easily after he gains the Parasol ability from an outside source.

Unlike in the games, Chuckie is specifically depicted as being attached to the box it emerges from in a jack-in-the-box-like fashion. It also assumes a more threatening face when it continues to attack Kirby, though this reverts to its normal appearance when it is hit.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the in-game Extra Game ending and the Nintendo Power coverage for Kirby's Dream Land, the names of Chuckie and Hurly are swapped. This does not occur in other material.
