|Kirby's Fishy Friend|
Kine is an ocean sunfish that appears as one of Kirby's Animal Friends in Kirby's Dream Land 2 and 3. He extended Kirby's copy ability movesets, however since Kirby's Copy Abilities have gotten more and more fleshed out on their own, the need for Animal Friends in general has diminished and are more relegated to cameos throughout the Kirby series. Kine specialized in underwater travel.
Kine is a giant blue circular ocean sunfish with tan fins. He has a giant orange mouth accented with big, bright orange lips. Kirby is easily able to fit inside his mouth.
Kine is laid-back and calm, typically a blank slate with an equally blank stare. He is incredibly sensitive and can be brought to tears easily when he becomes upset.
Powers and Abilities
Kine is more suited to underwater travel and can power through large currents with his strong swimming abilities. Kine also allows Kine to inhale and spit out enemies even when submerged underwater. When submerged, Kine will not drift down to the floor, but remain steady in place. Out of water, Kine is a very awkward character to handle.
Kine also changes the movesets of Kirby's copy abilities underwater, giving Kirby more of a upper hand while submerged. Generally these new moves are very much one note.
Kine appears as a playable character in Jake's Super Smash Bros. Similarly to how they act in Kirby Star Allies, Rick, Kine, and Coo act as a single character and switch out when performing certain actions. Players primarily take control of Kine whenever they enter water.
- There appears to be a somewhat cruel running gag about Kine in Kirby series in which he is frequently disliked, made fun of, or considered to be useless in some way.
