Keke, originally spelled KeKe, is an enemy making its debut Kirby's Dream Land 3 and later appearing in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. It is a humanoid with shaggy white hair, black ears resembling those of a cat, a long, black or purple robe and white or red shoes. It rides on a flying broom, in the same manner as a stereotypical witch.
Kirby's Dream Land 3
KeKe makes its first game appearance in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It gives the Clean ability when it or its broom is inhaled. Defeating KeKe causes it to roll away (like Ado and Adeleine do upon their defeat), but it can still damage Kirby if they collide. Additionally, KeKe's broom explodes, but if it is subjected to his inhale, Kirby just swallows the broom.
In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Keke can be found in the following levels and stages:
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
Keke only appears in the background of a few stages in Kirby 64. Its role as a background character means it cannot be interacted with, but it also has its own Enemy Info Card, with the number 72.
Keke can be found in the following levels and stages:
- Keke's name and design may be inspired by the titular protagonist of the Japanese animated film Kiki's Delivery Service, which is based on a novel by the same name. Apart from both characters having similar names and riding on a broom, Keke's robe resembles that worn by Kiki. Its cat-like ears, which resemble Kiki's hair ribbon, are also likely in reference to Kiki's familiar, a black cat named Jiji.
