This article is about the character with "spiky" hair in the anime series. For a list of enemies in the video games which may have "spiky heads" such as Gordo, see Category:Needle-yielding creatures or Category:Invincible enemies.
This article is about the Cappy child with spiky hair, and should not be confused with Iro, who is called Hohhe in Japanese.

Spikehead is a minor supporting character in the anime series Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. He is a Cappy and resident of Cappy Town. Along with Iro and Honey, he is one of the children who often plays with Tiff, Tuff, and Kirby, and sometimes shares in their perils.

Spikehead is a short and thin Cappy who gets his name from his tuft of spiky hair. He is also recognizable by his swirl-shaped cheek marks and often carries around a small twig. Spikehead is generally immature and irresponsible — though not quite to the same extent as Iro — and is not very verbose, preferring short punchy exclamations. He serves as a complement to Tuff in that regard, particularly when Tuff is opposed to Tiff over some issue. Spikehead is generally only interested in playing games, though he is also willing to help others where he can, an example being in Delivery Dilemma. He and Honey develop a crush on each other over the course of the show, and can sometimes be seen holding hands, though this relationship is not elaborated on much.

Language Name Meaning
Japanese イロー
Spikehead, Honey and Iro's Japanese names put together are イロー・ハニー・ホッヘ (irō/hanī/hohhe). This combination evokes the first six mōra (irohanihohe) of the Iroha, a ubiquitous poem used as an ordering for the kana whose name is colloquially equivalent to "the ABCs".
