These are Krackos-in-training. They're not very strong, but they sure work well on a team!
— 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.


Kirby's Dream Land 2

Co-Krackos are shot out from Kracko and act as his minions. Kirby can inhale them and spit them out at Kracko to damage him. They don't appear outside of this boss battle.

Kirby's Dream Land 3

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.

Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn

Yarn versions of Co-Krackos (referred to as Li'l 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.

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. Despite this, another “mature” Kracko has never been seen apart from Space Kracko and the fake ones created by Ado, Drawcia, and Adeleine, as the one fought throughout the series has been the same one since Kirby's Dream Land, as proven by Kirby Fighters Deluxe.
