Coo is one of Kirby's three original Animal Friends, being introduced in Kirby's Dream Land 2. Coo is a purple owl with a white chest, although some of his sprites and artwork depict him with gray instead of purple as his primary color.

When Kirby is traveling with Coo, the large owl holds the hero in his talons and carries him around, allowing him to fly faster than he normally could and fall much slower. Additionally, Kirby can inhale and fly at the same time, although he still has to be on the ground in order to swallow an enemy. Coo is also strong enough to fly against wind currents, making it possible to reach areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. Coo is easily the quickest of the Animal Friends, only being outmatched in the water against Kine.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Dream Land 2

Coo's Theme in Kirby's Dream Land 2.

Coo debuted along with Rick and Kine in this title. He can be found in certain bags after defeating the mini-boss on guard. From there, Kirby can mount him and they can travel together. Coo is extremely quick in the air, and can fly against strong breezes. He also utilizes Kirby's currently-equipped Copy Ability to perform various combo attacks.

Kirby's Star Stacker

In Kirby's Star Stacker, Coo, along with Kine and Rick, aids Kirby by eliminating any star blocks and devaluing hard blocks to star blocks between pairs of tiles.

Kirby's Dream Land 3

Coo returns as a friend for Kirby to team up with in Kirby's Dream Land 3, alongside the other Animal Friends from the game's predecessor. His appearance has remained largely the same, though he plays a little differently. If the player mashes the A button, Coo can fly even faster than before, even being able to beat water currents like Kine, but doing so comes at a risk, as many more enemies fill the air than before, and Coo and Kirby now share life.

Just like other Animal Friends, Coo once again grants Kirby access to different skills if the pink hero possesses a Copy Ability, although a few of these combinations differ slightly from those of the previous game.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

Although Coo does not appear in person in The Crystal Shards, he makes a cameo as one of the statues Kirby can turn into by using the Stone-Cutter Power Combo. As the Coo sculpture, Kirby can fly slowly through the air, though he cannot move while on the ground. As with the other results of Stone-Cutter, Kirby is invincible in this form and may end the transformation at any time by pushing the ability button again, causing the statue to crumble and harm nearby enemies with its debris.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Coo appears along with Rick and Kine in Kirby Fighters (and Kirby Fighters Deluxe) in the forest stage. He occasionally emerges from one of the tree trunks, and can toss feathers out to serve as a hazard to the combatants.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Coo appears as a Sticker in this title, and can also appear in one of the Stone transformations along with Rick and Kine.

Team Kirby Clash Deluxe

Coo cameos in this title, appearing in the village once enough battles have been won.

Kirby: Battle Royale

Coo can be seen in the audience in one of the Slam Hockey stages.

Kirby Star Allies

Main article: Rick & Kine & Coo

In Kirby Star Allies, Coo appears as a Dream Friend, and is fully playable as such, though tied in with Rick and Kine into a single character as Rick & Kine & Coo.

Coo appears when using any aerial moves or when flying off the ground. All his attacks can provide the Bluster elemental power. His feathers can also cut ropes and clear foliage.

Trivia

  • Coo is the only Animal Friend who has no Heart Star quest from his relative or friend in Kirby's Dream Land 3. There are only 5 levels in Dream Land 3, each level with one Animal Friend relative quest, leaving Coo alone.
