Dyna Chick is a large baby bird which is seen occasionally in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. It is Dyna Blade's chick, and its mother guards it jealously, often enacting furious revenge on Dream Land whenever it goes missing. Despite its size compared to most other characters, it is largely helpless and flightless, though it does have a good deal of curiosity.
Professor Curio explains that the Dyna Chick matures very slowly, taking up to 100 years to become an adult, which explains why it does not age much over the course of the show. In Kirby's Egg-Cellent Adventure, Kirby has to look out for it for a while after initially trying to eat it when it was still in its egg. In The Empty Nest Mess, King Dedede and Escargoon kidnap the chick in hopes of transforming it into a monster using a chemical concoction called insta-monster-mixture. Both times, the chick is eventually safely returned to its mother.
