Pichikuris are bird-like enemies that debut and appear exclusively in Kirby Air Ride. Here, they are spiky enemies that float around and hurt Kirby when they are touched. Their names are derived from the Japanese word, pīchiku, meaning "chatter of birds" and chikuri, which means the state of being stung. Pichikuris give Kirby the Needle ability when inhaled. Pichikuris also make a cameo appearance in Paint Panic in Kirby Canvas Curse, where Paint Roller draws them.
