|This article is about the regular enemy in the games. For the monster in the anime, see Whippy (monster).|
Whippy is an orange and red tiger-like enemy with a long tail and no visible appendages. It has blue eyes and wears a permanent scowl.
Whippy is first introduced in Raisin Ruins, and appears in many subsequent worlds thereafter. It sits in idly one spot, flicking its tail. When Kirby approaches the enemy, it swings its tail around momentarily. After this delay, it aims at the hero and cracks its tail like a whip. Whippy also appears in the Whip Challenge.
In Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition, Whippy appears in the New Challenge Stages mode, specifically in the Whip and Smash Challenges. Whippy also appears in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, where it behaves the like it does in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.
