From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Slippy is a bulbous yellow-orange frog-like creature with two feet that commonly inhabits pools of water, but can also be seen hopping around on land. It first appeared in Kirby's Adventure, where it serves as one of the game's regular enemies, and can be seen in a handful of subsequent Kirby games, making its last proper appearance in Kirby Super Star Ultra.
Slippy's movements can be hard to predict at times, particularly when it is hopping around on land, making it a moderate threat to Kirby when he enters its territory. Aside from that, however, Slippy has little in the means of defense aside from contact damage, and can be inhaled easily. It grants no Copy Ability when swallowed, however.
Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land

Slippy makes its debut appearance in Kirby's Adventure and appears again in the remake. Slippy is capable of swimming underwater, moving in short bursts. When on land, it hops around in high bounds, making it somewhat more dangerous than most other foes.
Slippy can be found in the following levels and stages:
Kirby's Pinball Land
In Kirby's Pinball Land, Slippy appears in Wispy-Woods Land, up at the top of the board, where it frequently changes places with an item that changes based on how many Cappies are left. If Kirby moves toward Slippy, it will sometimes hop over him. If collided with, Slippy won't be defeated, but it will be worth 3000 points.
Kirby's Dream Land 2

Sir Slippy can be found in the following levels and stages:
Kirby's Block Ball
In Kirby's Block Ball, Slippy is a common enemy that can be found moving along the blocks. It is worth 600 points when defeated and will drop a food item.
Its in-game sprite is ripped from Kirby's Dream Land 2, but its artwork as seen in the manual is re-colored from Kirby's Adventure.
