|“||A common beast that can be found all over the new world. They're pretty cute, but they have a dangerous wild side. They'll growl and jump at anyone who crosses them! A whole bunch of these critters attacked the Waddle Dees. Funny, you'd think they'd get along!”|
|— Capsule description • Kirby and the Forgotten Land|
Awoofy has notably canine-like features. It is covered in orange fur with a beige underbelly and snout. It has pointy ears, a slightly bushy tail, yellow hind paws, and a shiny, black nose. Its fur has red tips on its ears, tail, and front paws. Additionally, it has a red stripe on its forehead. It has eyes similar to those of Kirby's, albeit brown instead of blue.
An Awoofy pack are first seen chasing Waddle Dees as Kirby traverses the Point of Arrival, helping the Beast Pack capture them.
Awoofy is a lower-ranking member of the Beast Pack, and serves to replace Waddle Dee as the common enemy. In the game, Awoofy will either stand idly, wander around, or sleep until it spots Kirby. When it does, it will chase after him in an attempt to charge into him. However, it runs slowly and cannot make sharp turns. It is also noticed that when Awoofy is standing, it stands on two legs. However, when it is chasing Kirby or a Waddle Dee, it moves on all fours. It grants no Copy Ability if inhaled.

Awoofies have a stronger variant called the Primal Awoofy, with a similar appearance to theirs, although it has darker colours and a fringe on its back. They are also noticeably bigger in normal terms.

"Awoofy" comes from the onomatopoeia for a dog's bark, "woof."
Its Japanese name, ガルルフィ (Garurufi), comes from the Japanese onomatopoeia for growling, ガルル (garuru).
