Rocky is an enemy that appears in nearly every game in the Kirby series. Rockys are creatures who resemble blocks of stone with two eyes and two legs, and in some games they wear twisted cords of fabric around themselves, which almost resembles Hammer Kirby's headband. Rockys are very slow. There behavior is simple: they will try to smash Kirby. This will happen if Rocky stood on platforms above Kirby, and if he is underneath Rocky. If Kirby is near one but not underneath one, Rocky will leap towards and onto Kirby.
They wield the stake-pounding copy ability Stone.
Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land Edit
This was the first appearance of Rocky. Rocky resembles a large rock, light brown in color, with two eyes and small legs. He will try to crush Kirby the same way Kirby can crush enemies with the Stone ability: falling on him. Like Kirby, he closes his eyes tightly when attacking or "crouching". He is slightly smaller than Kirby in Stone form. In the remake, he stays the same, but he now has the cord of fabric from Kirby Super Star.
Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star UltraEdit
Rocky has the same behavior as in Kirby's Adventure. He now has a blue cord of fabric twisted around his head.
Rocky is also the helper for the Stone ability. He can do anything Stone Kirby can.
In Super Star Ultra, they are the same. A blue Rocky is playable in Helper to Hero.
Rocky appears in part of the blooper reel in Super Star Ultra. When Kirby is about to break through the barrier of rocks blocking the exit at the end of the Great Cave Offensive using his Warp Star, a large Rocky is sitting on the barrier. Kirby tries to smash it, but fails and falls into the hole again.
Kirby and the Amazing MirrorEdit
No changes in behavior have occurred. However there is a new type of Rocky called "Giant Rocky" that has more health and must be super inhaled.
