Noddy is a sleepy creature with no arms and a night cap who appears frequently in the Kirby series. In every game it appears in, Noddy is well known for inducing the Sleep ability when swallowed by Kirby. It, unlike many other enemies, does not try to attack Kirby, but can hurt him if he walks into Noddy, or if Noddy accidentally walks into him.

Appearance and behavior[edit]

Noddy resembles Kirby but has yellow feet, no arms, a slightly different color and wears a different color night cap, usually orange and yellow. Noddy's eyes are also more round and spread out on its face than Kirby's and has an off-white cheek blush as opposed to Kirby's rosy pink or magenta.

Noddy is not inclined to move very much. It prefers not to walk off of ledges and will not try to jump. As expected, Noddy spends most of its time asleep, making it very easy to avoid. Noddy is capable of jumping if possessed by Ghost Kirby, but interestingly enough, it assumes its 'sleeping' pose while jumping.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

In Milky Way Wishes, Noddy is one of the few enemies that can provide an ability when swallowed, and swallowing two at once allows Kirby to get a Mix, bypassing the Copy Essence Deluxe requirements for that mode.

Debut episode The Pillow Case

 This box: view  talk  edit 
Quote1.png Noddy; a dream monster. Or should I say, a nightmare monster. Quote2.png
— Meta Knight, in The Pillow Case

In The Pillow Case, King Dedede receives a gift from Night Mare Enterprises for being a loyal customer. This gift happened to be pillows that make whoever sleep on them have nightmares about Kirby, and, eventually, make them want to get rid of him. Later in the episode, they find out that the reason the pillows do this is because there are Noddys inside them.

Noddys here have a different color scheme to those in the games, having a yellow body and pink hat. They are also significantly smaller, and able to bounce around rather quickly when startled. After being uncovered by Meta Knight, the Noddys from the pillows bounce into the wilderness.

Noddys also appear in the episode Flower Power, where it is revealed that they are spawned by the flower monster Pukey, in order to lure victims affected by the sleeping sickness induced by the Noddys into its gaping maws. King Dedede describes the Noddys as the Pukey Flower's "berries", which travel far from the host plant to lure victims in.
