Knuckle Joe is an enemy appearing in three Kirby games as of now. He is, however, a recurring and semi-important character in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!.

Their helper forms are childish, elf-like fighters with spiky yellow hair, blue clothing, and a bandana wrapped around their head. Their regular enemy counterparts look exactly the same, but are recolored.


Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star UltraEdit

Knuckle Joes are an uncommon enemy in this game, appearing as the only regular enemy in the game that gives the Fighter ability. They attack with various, fast-paced, martial-art moves. As a Helper, Knuckle Joe can use all of the same techniques as Fighter Kirby can, except for the Tomoe Throw. A red Knuckle Joe plays in Helper to Hero.
