Whippies are enemies in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are small, tiger-like enemies. Whippys have red and orange skin, a white face, and two big blue eyes. They also have a long tail and no visible legs or other body parts. Whippies are first encountered in Raisin Ruins, and then later in many other levels. At first, Whippies can be found just sitting still in place (they have no legs, so they cannot move at all). However, when Kirby and his buddies (Meta Knight, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee) near one, it will crack its tail like a whip and attempt to hit them with it. If one of the heroes is hit by a Whippy's tail, they will take damage. Whippies can be defeated and Inhaled. When Kirby Inhales a Whippy, he receives the Whip Copy Ability. Whippy also appears in the Whip challenge of the game.
