Mine is a minor character from Kirby's Dream Land 3. Mine is a sunfish like Kine and is his wife.[1] She resembles Kine greatly, but is pink and has cheek blush, making her resemble Kirby somewhat. She also has a much smaller mouth with no visible lips. She appears at the end of Grass Land - Stage 5 and gives a Heart Star to Kirby if he brings Kine to her.

Other appearances[edit]

Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe[edit]

A Dress-Up Mask based on Mine appears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe, marking her first 3D appearance and the first appearance of her name within a game rather than exclusively in supplementary material. It is unlocked by completing 10 missions in Merry Magoland. It is one of two Dress-Up Masks in the game to have a gameplay effect beyond an aesthetic change, as it replaces the wearer's Water Gun with the Water ability's Enhanced Water Gun, an effect it shares with the Kine Dress-Up Mask.

In the Kirby novel series[edit]

In the Kirby novel series, Mine appears in Kirby: Save the Rainbow Islands!. Even when it stopped raining in the Rainbow Islands, Mine and Kine did not struggle as much as other fish due to being trained to live on land. Mine helps Pick makes snacks for Pirika, and King Dedede wants to eat them too, but Mine stops him. Mine stays at Rick's house when Kirby and his friends go to help Pirika. At the end of the story, Mine celebrates the return of the rain with the others.
