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, and sometimes shares their perils.

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. Iro is generally the most verbose of the Cappy kids, but he is also the most irresponsible, as he is often the one who instigates whatever bad behavior the kids get into. He often gets into trouble with his parents due to his selfishness, though these scenes often only appear in the Japanese version of the show. Despite these bad habits, Iro generally follows the other kids' lead and tries to help others.

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