— Kabu in Kirby Comes to Cappy Town
Great Sage Kabu is a supporting character who debuted in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. He is a massive stone idol who resides in the aptly named Kabu Canyon and is worshiped by the residents of Cappy Town, who often come to the canyon in large congregations to seek his council. Kabu is able to predict the future, and will relay this information to the people when they approach him. Kabu is often threatened by King Dedede and Escargoon, since the people respect him more than they do them.
Kabu is hollow, with his inside acting as a sanctuary. It is here that Kirby's Warp Star is eventually kept for safekeeping, and whenever Tiff calls for it, it flies out of Kabu's mouth to Kirby's aid, then returns when the crisis is over.
The following is a complete list of all of Kabu's appearances in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, along with other information regarding his role in each episode:
