Prank is an purple imp-like enemy with stubby legs and arms. He has two gap teeth and a set of horns on the top of his head.
Prank only appears in this game. As his name implies, Prank will try his best to pull a faintly comical (and sometimes cliche) prank joke on Kirby. These jokes are clearly mischievous in nature, and may also be harmful. Depending on what type of "joke" Prank plays, Kirby may get an ability from eating it. His pranks include trying to trip Kirby with a banana peel, painting Kirby's face with purple paint, throwing a frying pan forward (which gives Cook to Kirby) fireballs (which give Fire), or chunks of ice (which give Ice). He may even drop bombs (which give Bomb). While slipping on the banana peel does not damage Kirby, it does cause him to lose any Copy Ability he may have.
If Kirby is hit by his paint attack, however, he does suffer damage and needs to take a second to wipe his face clean again. He cannot move when cleaning his face, much like Leap when she kisses Kirby. After pulling a prank on Kirby, Prank flees from the scene. When Kirby swallows Prank himself, he gets no ability. Pranks make their first appearance in Rainbow Route.
Prank appears in Kirby: Triple Deluxe as a collectible keychain.
Prank was named after playing tricks.
