This article is about the Cappy child who wears a green-striped shirt and small hat, and should not be confused with Spikehead, who is called Irō in Japanese.

Iro is a minor supporting character in the anime series Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. He is a Cappy and resident of Cappy Town. Along with Honey and Spikehead, he is one of the children who often plays with Tiff, Tuff, and Kirby.

Iro is the biggest and oldest of the Cappy children, and is recognizable by his striped shirt and small hat. Despite his age, he is not comparably mature, having the same general disregard for the consequences of his actions as Spikehead, which often gets him in trouble.

In the Japanese version, Hohhe is voiced by Makiko Ohmoto, the same actress who voices Kirby.
