Nruffs are enemies in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are large boar-like creatures with brown and yellow fur, a rounded nose, black hooves, and two angry-looking eyes with no pupils. Nruffs lack tusks in the game, though in previous Kirby games, they had tusks. Nruffs are common enemies in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They can be encountered in levels such as Raisin Ruins, White Wafers, Nutty Noon etc. Nruffs attack by charging towards the heroes (Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee), stopping for nothing. If the Nruffs pass the heroes, they will continue charging forward unless they hit a wall. If they hit a wall, the Nruffs will turn around and charge in the opposite direction. Nruffs are almost always encountered in groups of two
or more. Sometimes a Waddle Dee can be found riding on the charging Nruff as if it is a horse. Any hero who touches a charging Nruff will take damage and lose any Copy Ability they were currently using. Anyway, Nruffs can be defeated in this game, however, if Kirby Inhales a Nruff, he will not gain any Copy Ability.
