Kirby’s Dream Land 3 – Kirby and Friends

Media: video game: “Kirby’s Dream Land 3” by HAL Laboratory
Platform: Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), Wii Virtual Console

In Kirby’s Dream Land 3, Kirby is joined by his blue counter-part known as Gooey can be spawned by pressing the A button and controlled with the second controller. A few different cast members can also help out, giving the various powers in the game some variability depending on which animal is befriended. There’s Kine the ocean sunfish, Nago the cat, Coo the owl, Chuchu the Slime, Pitch the bird and Rick the hamster. As should be common knowledge to most gamers, Kirby can gain the powers of his enemies by inhaling them and absorbing them, or may simply spit them out to use them as a makeshift missile.

Just like Kirby, Gooey shares the ability to absorb enemies’ abilities when controlled by a second person, but instead of inhaling them, he uses his long tongue to draw them in.

Interestingly, Kirby can inhale and absorb Gooey to regain one full icon of health (the cost of summoning him) though Gooey can’t do the same to Kirby.

Kirby can be seen doing so at 6:05 of the following video.

Of Kirby’s other friends, Kine and Rick are both worth a mention. When partnered with Kine (by pressing X next to him), he will take Kirby and hold him in his mouth, and when the partnership is cancelled (X again), he will spit him out.

In the introduction to world 2, they make use of this as a joke. Kirby and Chuchu are walking by a body of water when Kine hops out and snags Kirby in his lips. He and Chuchu fight over Kirby, each wanting him for themselves, though when Kine tries to take Kirby back, it is implied that he accidentally swallowed Kirby.

But perhaps it will be better understood if seen at 0:05 of the following video.

Rick is the only other friend who can directly swallow an enemy. When partnered with him, Kirby will ride on his back, and the Y button, which is normally used for Kirby’s inhale, will make Rick open his mouth to allow him to swallow an enemy (giving the power to Kirby) or spit them out like normal.

Rick can be seen doing his thing at 1:50 of this video. In that same video, Gooey makes good use of his tongue at 0:57.
