Obachan is a character in Kirby's Dream Land 3. She appears in the second level of Sand Canyon. She wants Kirby to use the Clean ability to clean the dirt in the desert buildings. Obachan is found in the fourth room along with all the dusty walkways. If Kirby cleans up all the dust, she will reward Kirby with a Heart Star at the end of the level.
Obachan is round, and has yellow skin. Her hands are red, and her feet are black. She wears a white handkerchief on top of her head.
Obachan's name comes from おば (oba), the Japanese word for aunt/grandmother; and the suffix for a familiar person, ちゃん (chan).
