Togekuki is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It yields the Needle ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Togekuki is a small orange sphere with a single eye with three pink spikes protruding its sides and top and a cactus-like vine growing from its bottom.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land

The enemy doesn't attack and merely serves as an obstacle to hinder Kirby's progress. Togekuki is one of the more durable enemies in the game, as its head can only be defeated once its vine is destroyed -- this can take several hits. As a simple head, Togekuki can be inhaled or defeated with any other attack.


Togekuki's name comes from the Japanese word for thorn, とげ/棘 (toge); and the Japanese word for stem, くき/茎 (kuki).
