|— Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn|
Co-Krackos are enemies who resemble Kracko, except for the fact that they have only four spikes and are smaller. They are obviously minions (or perhaps offspring) of Kracko himself. Their four spikes make them look similar to Mecha Kracko from Kirby: Squeak Squad.
Co-Krackos don't appear in-person in Kirby's Dream Land 3, rather, they appear as paintings that Ado's version of Kracko will create.
Yarn versions of Co-Krackos appear at the end of Cloud Palace, a yarn version of Bubbly Clouds, as Kirby and Prince Fluff approach Kracko. Kirby and the prince must shoot them down with their Star Shooters. After the battle begins, Kracko begins freely summoning them (in three groups of three at a time) to attack Kirby.
In this game, they are called Li'l Krackos. They are said to be "Krackos-in-training."
Co means "child" (子) or "small" (小) in Japanese, thus Co-Kracko would be "Small Kracko" or "Child Kracko."
- In Kirby's Epic Yarn, the Co-Krackos are said to be Krackos in training. If this is true, this means that there is more than one Kracko, which would explain his changing attack patterns.
