Chef Kawasaki (Sometimes called Cook Kawasaki or just Kawasaki) is a reccuring character that debuted as mini-boss in Kirby Super Star. In following appearances, Kawasaki tended to serve as a sort of friend or ally to Kirby.
Cook Kawasaki is a tall, egg-shaped being dressed in chef's attire. He has an orange body with a slight backwards lean with arms emerging from his sides that taper to simple hands. He has tall, dark eyes and a wavering smile. He has simple red shoes that stick out from the bottom of his form with no legs between them and his body. He wears a toque (chef's hat) and a full body apron with a blue striped pocket on the front. He is normally seen carrying a frying pan and sometimes a metal ladle.
In the GamesEdit
Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star UltraEdit
Kawasaki performs a small series of actions when battled. He can extend his frying pan forward to catch Kirby, which drags him back and lets the chef fry him up. He also reaches into his pocket and tosses out dishes, either one or three, at a spread of upward angles. These can be inhaled and spit back at him. Other times, Kawasaki either jumps up and down in a fit of rage or walks to the other side of the screen.
When swallowed after being defeated, he grants the Cook ability, being the only source of it in this game outside of mixing.
