Walky is a regular enemy in Kirby's game series. It is a living, sentient, dangerous microphone that can't carry a tune for its life. It is designed to look like a traditional stage microphone. Because it is hinged between its two halves, it is able to fire out amplified sound waves. It commonly attacks by shouting a terrible cacophony as it trudges along. Walky, despite its name, is actually unable to walk in earlier games, nor is it even truly personified in some games!
Walky also appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Nightmare in DreamlandEdit
Paint Roller draws Walky as one of his drawings. It simply trots along until it walks right off screen. Rather than emitting a tasteless tune like it usually does, the drawn walky just walks away quietly, hinting that the this version of Walky is actually incapable of making any sounds. When inhaled though, it gives the Mike ability. Because the Mike ability can kill Paint Roller almost instantly, it rarely gets drawn.
Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star UltraEdit
Kirby Super Star was first to use a truly-personified microphone for Walky's design (one that wasn't an enchanted drawing). It is also the first game to use Walky's current design. Super Star is often considered by fans to be Walky's true debut.
Walky rarely shows up on levels, strolling about. Occasionally, it stops to cry out a terrible tune. This sends forth three bad notes, one straight forth and the others diagonally forward. It gives the Mike ability when eaten again.
