Kirby's Dream Land 2[edit]

In-game sprite.

First appearing in the second stage of Big Forest, Spikeys constantly follow Kirby, but stop when they reach the edge of the platform on which they are walking. When Kirby reaching within a certain distance, they stop and bristle up, showing their quills and harming Kirby if he gets too close. In this state, Spikeys are immobile. If Kirby leaves their vicinity, however, they stop defending themselves, resuming their original form of movement.

Regardless of whether or not they are showing their spines, Spikeys can be inhaled for a bonus of 200 points or defeated using any other attack for 400 points to be added to the score. Swallowing them grants Kirby the Needle ability.


Spikey can be found in the following levels and stages:
