Dupa is an enemy from Another Dimension encountered in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and its remake, Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe. It is only encountered in Another Dimension and in the new Magolor Epilogue: The Interdimensional Traveler extra mode in the remake, alongside its counterparts, the Darpas, Dippas, and Deppas.
Dupa is the smallest out of its four brethren, as well as the only one with feet. It is a greenish-cyan egg-shaped creature with three small feathers on its head, similar to those of the higher-ranking Sphere Doomers. It bears an angry expression from its yellow eyes, also like the Sphere Doomers.
This enemy is the most complex of its group. It has the ability to fire projectiles like the Dippa, but they only quickly travel in a straight line. These projectiles can damage Kirby and his friends if they make contact with one. These bullets can also be shot down to avoid getting hit. The Dupa is always attached to a solid surface and moves quickly back and forth within a small unseen section of the surface. It has moderate health, but is about as easy to defeat as a Darpa.

Dupa is firstly introduced in Kirby's Return to Dream Land as an enemy solely found in Another Dimension, only present in segments of the level that are not boss fights. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Dupas also appear throughout Magolor Epilogue: The Interdimensional Traveler as recurring enemies, marking the first time any player is able to interact with them without riding on Landia.
In the boss battle against the Master Crown, Dupas can be summoned through dimensional rifts created by the crown itself, and are souped up in terms of health. Because of this, said boss battle in The True Arena is also the only time Kirby is able to encounter Dupas on foot and inhale them, however they will only give no ability if swallowed.
