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.
The following is a complete list of all of Dyna Chick's appearances in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, along with other information regarding its role in each episode:

|The Empty Nest Mess
|Dyna Chick is the central focus of this episode, when it gets lost in Dream Land after King Dedede and Escargoon attempt to kidnap it from its nest but fumble its cage and lose it. Kirby, Tokkori, and others try to look after the chick and get it to return home with little success as it proceeds to run amok in Cappy Town. Before long, the chick ends up falling into the river after King Dedede and Escargoon try to recapture it with a net. After drifting down the river with Tokkori for a while, King Dedede and Escargoon catch up and capture the chick, taking it to the castle. They intend to use an "insta-monster mixture" on the chick to turn it into a monster, but Dyna Blade and Kirby arrive just in time to stop them.
