The Otakings are a trio of characters that appear in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. They appear in the episode Tooned Out.


The Otakings are geeky hipsters. They are expert anime specialists, and they seem to be interested in Tiff since she is cute.

Physical Appearance

The Otakings differ in their appearance. Their leader, Biggie, is the biggest of them all. He has a large chin and wears transparent light blue glasses in addition to a blue cap backwards on his head. He wears yellow shoes as well as a red-and-blue T-shirt, over which he wears a full-body apron. His eyes are most often seen closed.

Bony is their thinnest member. He wears a yellow bandana that covers his eyes. His hair is black. He wears a light blue long-sleeved shirt with a pink, open T-shirt over it. Bony also wears long red pants and green shoes.

Sleepy is a short otaku with a somewhat fish-like mouth. He wears round white glasses over his eyes, has a large chin, and has human-like ears and yellow hair. Sleepy also wears a white T-shirt and red shoes.


The Otakings make their only appearance in the episode Tooned Out, where King Dedede hires them to make an anime after his previous anime failed. According to King Dedede, Kirby is the villain. King Dedede himself is the hero. The Otakings are stunned by the video, and Escargoon tries to draw their attention, but to no avail. King Dedede tells them to make an anime with him as the hero, but the Otakings instead lock their attention on Tiff because she is cuter. They take pictures of Tiff, irritating her. Their new anime is created, but Dedede is not happy with their desire to make Tiff the star, so he purchased Anige to help in his production the cartoon he'd wanted. However, Anige is destroyed, so Dedede decides to put the Otakings' creation on display. However, King Dedede finds to his dismay that the show the Otakings had created starred a much taller and more personified anime-styled version of Tiff (even adding exaggerated breasts and longer legs with orange tights). Tiff asks if she was supposed to be the character on-screen, and the Otakings defend their cause by singing "Fumu-tan of the Stars." Angry with this, Tiff (as she says, "Yeah, I'm short all right, and so is my temper!") chases the Otakings with King Dedede's hammer.


  • The Otakings may have earned their name from "Otaku" (geek) and "king."
