Keke, originally spelled KeKe[1], is an enemy making her debut Kirby's Dream Land 3 and later appearing in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. She is a humanoid girl with shaggy white hair, black ears resembling those of a cat, a long, black or purple robe and white shoes. She rides on a flying broom, in the same manner as a stereotypical witch.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land 3[edit]

KeKe makes her first game appearance in Kirby's Dream Land 3. She gives the Clean ability when she or her broom is inhaled. Defeating KeKe causes her to roll away (like Ado and Adeleine do upon their defeat), but she can still damage Kirby if they collide. Additionally, KeKe's broom explodes, but if she is subjected to his inhale, Kirby just swallows the broom.

Locations[edit]

In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Keke can be found in the following levels and stages:

Trivia[edit]

  • 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. Her cat-like ears, which resemble Kiki's hair ribbon, are also likely in reference to Kiki's familiar, a black cat named Jiji.
