Wonkey (formerly known as Carry Dee, and also once referred to as Key Dee) is a brightly colored enemy that resembles a Waddle Dee, though it also sports a tail. These enemies first appeared in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, and have appeared in all main series installments (and some spin-offs) since then. They are always first seen carrying items, usually Keys.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Wonkey can be found in many stages, usually inside a closed chamber - starting in a place where Kirby cannot reach it. From here, some mechanism can usually be tripped to set the Wonkey free, where it will then run off with its Key. Kirby will have to chase down the Wonkey and intercept it before it falls into a Void or other hazard, taking the Key with it. Other times, Kirby will have to stop the Wonkey from using the Key on the wrong door.

Wonkeys can move at various speeds, and have the ability to jump over certain obstacles when their path is blocked. They tend to fall off cliffs, though, so Kirby may have to make them a path in some instances. In Extra Mode, Wonkeys generally move faster, making it harder for Kirby to keep up.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Wonkey returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, performing the exact same function as in its previous appearance. However, some Wonkeys, notably the ones found in DededeTour!, are white instead of gold. Wonkeys can often be seen in the background, being a natural place where Kirby would not have immediate access to them.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Wonkey makes a few small appearances in Kirby: Planet Robobot, serving the same function as before, though instead of Keys, they carry Batteries. In one particular instance, Kirby has to guide an aspiring Wonkey through heavy traffic.

Kirby's Blowout Blast

In Kirby's Blowout Blast, Wonkey holds a golden coin, and will attempt to run off an edge either if Kirby gets too close, or takes too long to dispatch it. Defeating it will automatically confer the coin upon Kirby.

Kirby Star Allies

Wonkey returns in this title, doing its normal thing of carrying Keys. To help Wonkey reach its destination, Kirby and his friends can form a Friend Bridge and guide it across gaps.
