In-game sprite.

Spikey is an enemy found in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and Kirby's Block Ball. It resembles a hedgehog or porcupine with bright yellow skin and black spines. Of its face, only two oval, black eyes can be seen, and it possesses flipper-like arms and a pair of round, red feet.

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 approached, they turn around 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.


  • The Spikeys' way of attacking is very similar to the attack Rick can perform with the Needle ability.
