Nyupun is a character appearing in the game Kirby's Dream Land 3. Depending on the source/depiction, Nyupun is either ChuChu's [female] best friend or her boyfriend. Nyupun is found in Sand Canyon's fifth level. If Kirby brings ChuChu to the end of the stage, Nyupun will reward him with a Heart Star.
Nyupun looks similar to ChuChu; however, Nyupun is yellow, sports a white sailor's hat with a pink ribbon, and has lighter-colored cheeks and round shaped brown eyes. In the Kirby's Dream Land 3 comic book, the hat is pink while the ribbon is magenta.
- On February 13, 2018, the Kirby 25th Anniversary Twitter account posted artwork of various characters decorating cookies for Valentine's Day. ChuChu is seen with a cookie based on Nyupun. This is the first time Nyupun has been acknowledged in official Kirby media in 21 years.
