Tuff is the tritagonist of Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. He is a friend of Kirby, younger brother of Tiff, and son of Sir Ebrum and Lady Like. Tuff is usually nice to Kirby and friends, but often plays pranks, even teaming up with Escargoon to prank King Dedede. Tuff lives with his family in Castle Dedede which overlooks Cappy Town.


Tuff is a rowdy and mischievous young boy who has a good heart but not much in the way of intellect to go with it. He loves to play games like soccer and do other outdoor activities. He also loves to pull pranks, though usually on people like Dedede so he can easily justify it. However, sometimes his pranks cause trouble for the people of the village as well. Tuff lives for having fun and doesn't take many things seriously. However, he often falls victim to Dedede's plots like many others in Dream Land thanks to that.


Tuff is a young boy about a head taller than Kirby. His skin is a light orange color, unlike his family, as is the top of his hair. The tips are green, with the colors separated by a zigzag. His hair goes down over his eyes (which are strangely never seen nor is the absence of visible eyes ever noted by anyone). He only wears a pair of purple shorts held up by a single red suspender and green shoes.
