Rocky is a recurring foe throughout the Kirby series, making its debut in Kirby's Adventure and appearing in many of the games released since then. It resembles a walking stone with a pair of flat feet, black eyes and often a bandana. While its colors may vary between appearances, it 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 its high perch as leverage to drop down on Kirby as he is walking by, in an effort to squish him with its weight. In the event that Rocky misses, it will rise, exposing its feet, and slowly walk around. In some of its 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, its attacks can be easily avoided by moving out of the way.

While a Rocky is vulnerable to all attacks, defeating it 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.
