Pon Jr. & Con Jr. look similar to their bigger counterparts, of course. Pon Jr. is a small tanuki with brown fur, black feet, and a white belly. It has brown arms, beady eyes, and a striped tail in Kirby Star Allies.
Con Jr. is a small kitsune with yellow fur, yellow feet, and a white belly. It has yellow arms, beady eyes, and a puffy tail in Kirby Star Allies. Both of them wear a black and purple helmet in this game during the boss fight with Pon & Con.
Pon Jr. & Con Jr. are minions of the boss of Sand Canyon, Pon & Con. They run from one side of the bosses' stage to the other, never stopping. The enemies can move at two speeds: a brisk jog or a full-on sprint. Many jog in single file lines behind one of the masters; Pon Jrs. tend to follow Pon while Con Jrs. often follow Con, but this is not always the case.
Pon Jr. and Con Jr. damage Kirby and Gooey if they run into the heroes. The heroes can jump over the enemies due to their short statures, however. Pon Jr. and Con Jr. can serve as ammunition if the player does not have a Copy Ability; this is required in Boss Butch.
Pon Jr. & Con Jr. reprise their roll as the minions of Pon & Con. Their behaviors are mostly the same as before. A Pon Jr. and/or Con Jr. appears at the top of the screen and waves a few seconds before a bomb drops. These enemies are occasionally accompanied by Waddle Doo.
- In Kirby Star Allies, Pon Jr. and Con Jr. both have dot-like eyes, which is similar to how Ado drew them in Kirby's Dream Land 3.
