With a will as hard as…something very hard, this rugged fellow is a real heavy hitter. He slides on water or ice and has an uppercut to end any argument!
Quote2.png
— Guest Star Rocky Rock the World Pause Screen description in Kirby Star Allies

Rocky is a recurring foe throughout the Kirby series, making his debut in Kirby's Adventure and appearing in many of the games released since then. He resembles a walking stone with a pair of flat feet, black eyes and often a bandanna. While his colors may vary between appearances, he is most commonly depicted as brown or orange with yellow feet.

Rockies commonly situate themselves atop tall columns, Star Blocks or other high-elevation objects. Their location is significant in terms of how they attack: Rocky uses his high perch as leverage to drop down on Kirby as he is walking by, in an effort to squish him with his weight. In the event that Rocky misses, he will rise, exposing his feet, and slowly walk around. In some of his appearances, if Kirby as on the same level as Rocky, the foe will jump to a location in the air right above Kirby and hesitate a beat before attempting to fall on top of him once more. As a Rocky can only fall straight down, however, his attacks can be easily avoided by moving out of the way.

While a Rocky is vulnerable to all attacks, defeating him by any means other than inhaling can take a long time in any game that assigns health meters to enemies due to the enemy's sturdiness. As one would expect, if Rocky is ingested, Kirby will receive the Stone Copy Ability.

Rocky can also be made into a Helper in Kirby Super Star (Ultra) and Kirby Star Allies.

K64 Rocky Sprite.png Rocky appears in 3-D in this game, though he has a greatly simplified appearance here, consisting only of a rounded rock with a pair of black eyes and orange feet. He typically waits at a high place for Kirby to approach, and then tucks his feet in to start rolling off the edge of his precipice to fall swiftly onto Kirby. From there, he will try to walk back and forth slowly. Unlike in most other games, Rocky is comparatively rare in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards due to the fact that many other enemies in the game also provide the Stone ability.

Rocky also appears on the 11th Enemy Info Card.
