Kirby Wiki

Togezo is an enemy that first appears in Kirby's Adventure. It provides Kirby with the Needle ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Togezo is a turtle-like black creature with red eyes (yellow in-game) and a large, red shell with yellow spikes on top of it. Togezo's feet are red.


Kirby's Adventure

Togezo makes its first appearance in Kirby's Adventure. It will curl up into a ball for defense in certain intervals. In this game and this game only, Togezo will also roll around vigorously in an attempt to impale Kirby with its spiked shell. In this game and in every appearance Togezo makes in a Kirby title, he grants Kirby the Needle ability when inhaled.

In this game's remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Togezo was replaced by Needlous, who retained all of Togezo's attacks but as different in appearance. The reasons for this change is to avoid regulations with the Mario universe, as "Togezo" means "Spiny".

Kirby's Dream Course

Togezo appears as an enemy in Kirby's Dream Course. Unlike previously, Togezo will just stand still without doing its roll attack.

Kirby's Dream Land 3

Togezo's latest appearance is in Kirby's Dream Land 3, where he retains his appearance (with some coloration changes), but not all of his forms of attack. Togezo does not roll around vigorously in this game.
