Keke, originally spelled KeKe, is an enemy who first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 3 and later appeared in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. She 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. She rides on a flying broom, in the same manner as a stereotypical witch.
Kirby's Dream Land 3
KeKe makes her first game appearance in Kirby's Dream Land 3. She gives the Clean ability when she or her broom is inhaled. If inhaled normally, only KeKe's broom will be inhaled, but attacking or bumping into KeKe's broom causes it to explode, allowing KeKe herself to be inhaled. Defeating KeKe causes her to roll away (like Ado and Adeleine do upon their defeat), but she can still damage Kirby if she collides with him.
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. Her role as a background character means she cannot be interacted with, but she also has her 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. Her cat-like ears, which resemble Kiki's hair ribbon, are also likely in reference to Kiki's familiar, a black cat named Jiji.
