Madame Mabel is a Cappy and supporting character appearing in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, making her debut in the episode A Dark & Stormy Knight in a minor scene. She acts as Cappy Town's mystic and fortune teller and uses a crystal ball as part of her work, though Samo explains that she is not actually clairvoyant, but merely relies on town gossip to counsel the other Cappies in the guise of reading their fortune.


Mabel is a pear-shaped Cappy who wears a purple and orange headdress on her head which contains a large amethyst center. Along with this, she has four large eyelashes and wears hoop earrings, magenta-colored lipstick, and two golden bangles on each of her wrists. This elaborate dress gives her the vague impression of being royalty, which causes her some trouble when Sir Gallant appraises her as the fictional Princess Zaia in One Crazy Knight.

Mabel is defined by her outgoing and often brazen and headstrong personality, which she uses to great effect when reading the fortunes of others. Much like Tiff, she is not afraid to berate people for their bad deeds, and often targets King Dedede in particular who — despite the circumstances — often comes to her to have his fortune read, though he seldom actually heeds her advice and usually ends up paying for it. Samo reveals in Prediction Predicament - Part I that Mabel is not actually capable of predicting the future, but instead uses town gossip and her knowledge of others to counsel the Cappies, with the fortune-telling aspect merely being a formality to involve them deeper in the process. This was initially a secret between the two of them, but in the events of Mabel Turns the Tables, she reveals the secret publicly after fooling nearly everyone in Dream Land into believing that the country was about to be destroyed by a cataclysm. Mabel later becomes romantically involved with Samo, though she often teases him over his insecurities.

Role in Kirby: Right Back at Ya![edit]

Though she is not a main character in the show, Mabel does see some important leading roles in many episodes, with the most notable ones being Prediction Predicament - Part I and Part II, One Crazy Knight, and Mabel Turns the Tables. In other episodes where she is not merely incidental, she can often be seen assisting Tiff and acting as a sort of mentor to her. Due in part to her occupation, Mabel is less likely to fall for King Dedede's tricks than the other Cappies, though she is still sometimes susceptible. Instead, she is often the one who tricks King Dedede, as her fortune telling plays into the gullible King's superstition.

In the final episodes of the anime, Mabel is among those who joins Meta Knight's assault on eNeMeE's Fortress using the Halberd, though like the other Cappies, she was initially hesitant to get involved.
