— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Primal Awoofy is a wolf-like creature which makes its first appearance in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and is a variant of the common Awoofy. They make their first appearance alongside King Dedede in An Unexpected Beast King, and can be found in stages thereafter, largely replacing standard Awoofies. As opposed to their orange counterparts, these members of the Beast Pack are grayish-brown and white; they are also larger, with scruffier fur. Like Awoofies, Primal Awoofies are primarily quadrupedal, but can often be seen standing upright when looking around or holding still.
Primal Awoofy's general behavior is to sit in place, patrol a given area, or sleep until Kirby gets close enough for it to spot him. When this happens, Primal Awoofy responds by running after Kirby at a modest speed, aiming to hurt him by collision. Some members within the Redgar Forbidden Lands will function as lookouts which will proceed to howl and call for additional enemies should they spot Kirby (the one that does so in The Beast Pack's Final Stand simply does so attacking). Primal Awoofy has more health than its normal counterpart, but it can still be inhaled easily, though it still grants no Copy Ability if swallowed. Primal Awoofy is worth one Star Coin when defeated.
Primal Awoofy can be found in the following stages:
