Escargoon (Escargon in Japan) is a recurring character in the anime, Kirby: Right Back At Ya!. His overall appearance is that of a purple-pink snail, carrying a green shell atop his back. He works as a main minion for King Dedede and resides with him in Castle Dedede.

Character Relations

King Dedede

Since Escargoon has dealt with Dedede for years, he does not mind his behavior very much. He complains about Dedede's repetitive abuse and pranks, but when he, along with everyone else, believes the world will end, he cries that "this will be the last time you hit me!". When asked if he likes Dedede, Escargoon replies "NO!"[1]


Escargoon despises Kirby almost as much as Dedede does, and often helps the king order various Monsters meant to defeat Kirby.

His Mother

Escargoon loves his mother very much. He writes letters to her and occasionally invites her to their castle. Escargoon is always trying to impress his mom, and even pretends he is the king of Dream Land to make her proud of him. [2]

The Cappies

Escargoon is on negative terms with Tiff, Tuff and other citizens of Cappy Town. He often yells at them for breaking minor laws or even being on castle grounds (even though Tiff and Tuff live in the castle). He is generally nicer to Tuff, however, helping him pull various pranks.

Escargoon is a greedy snail who always listens to his ruler, King Dedede, despite grumbling about his commands often. He is shown to love jewels, as he keeps a collection of them behind a brick in Dedede Castle.
