Kitsuu is a small green woodpecker with red spiky feathers on his head as well as purple legs who appears as a minor character in the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! anime. He lives in the Eastern Forest alongside several other Animal Friends, like Nruff, Nelly, Pon & Con, Rick, and Coo. He defends Acore from King Dedede and Escargoon when they try to cut him down in the episode, War of the Woods.
Kitsuu's name comes from the Japanese word for woodpecker, 啄木鳥/キツツキ (kitsutsuki).
