Professor Curio is a Cappy from Cappy Town who appears in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. He is also known as Mr. Curio or just Curio. He first appeared in A Blockbuster Battle, but did not have a starring role until Episode 8: Curio's Curious Discovery.


Professor Curio is a well respected and elderly gentlemen who lives in Cappy Town. Curio runs an antique shop/museum where he displays his artifacts of ancient Dream Land and a long lost Cappy civilization. Besides collecting ancient artifacts, Curio also finds solace by learning about the past in his free time as well. His museum and its artifacts are often destroyed by various events within the episodes, so he often has to spend hours sprucing it up. He enjoys working to piece together the past, however hard it may be.

Despite his passion for his work, Curio is not very skilled in social interactions, and often stumbles and stammers when he speaks. He is also easily taken advantage of, as evidenced in Episode 8 when King Dedede and Escargoon pressure him to forge archaeological findings to boost the King's royal legitimacy. He is somewhat reserved and cowardly most of the time, but finds bravery when King Dedede pushes him too far in Episode 8, going so far as to even run up to the giant monster Dedede Stone and attack it with a pickaxe.

Physical Appearance[edit]

Curio is a Cappy who wears a brown coat with a red bowtie. Since he is elderly, he has grey hair, grey eyebrows, and a grey moustache and beard. His mouth is hidden under his facial hair. His gear includes a satchel which he stores artifacts in.
