This article is about the character in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. For the video game enemy, see Kabu.

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.
