This article is about the enemy from the games. For the monster in the anime, see Whippy (monster).

Whippy is an enemy that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, yielding the Whip ability when swallowed.

Whippy has an oval shaped body with vaguely feline features and a long, whip-like tail on top. It has orange whiskers on the side of its head, and its fur consists of warm colors, mainly reds and oranges. Whippy bears a dour expression, accented by its brow.

Whippy spins its tail around in the air once, then snaps the whip toward the closest target. This has a decent amount of range to it, making Whippy rather dangerous.
