NESP (referred to in internal game data as Esper) is a floating enemy that debuts in Kirby: Planet Robobot, and provides the ESP ability when swallowed. He somewhat resembles Magolor in physique, bearing a small body and two disembodied hands. He wears a black hood with a psychic eye insignia on it and attacks by sending an oscillating wave of energy in Kirby's direction. NESP will also occasionally teleport about, with this being his only form of movement as an enemy.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

NESP returns in Kirby Star Allies as a Friend, as well as an enemy. He provides the ESP ability like before. Unlike most other allies, NESP is capable of hovering without resorting to an Infinity Jump. Once made into a friend, it may appear at first that NESP does not wear a Kirby-style hat. However, the rim of the hat can be seen underneath NESP's hood.


  • Despite floating above the ground, NESP still makes footstep sounds when 'walking'.
  • NESP is one of the few allies who can vocalize. He does this when using PK Insight, though this shout is exactly the same as Kirby's.
  • NESP's name is likely a reference to Ness, the protagonist of EarthBound. Additionally, Kirby wears a hat similar to Ness's when he has the ESP ability.
