|Catch Phrase||"You Love Dirt! DIG! 'Sweet dirt! DIG! DIG! DIG! DIG! 'Can't dig everywhere...|
|Appearances||Kirby: Squeak Squad|
|Special Powers||Digs Through Dirt and Snow|
Animal Kirby is one of the new abilities of Kirby, and it's obvious the idea is very unique. When transformed, Kirby can dig underground through dirt and snow. The sad part is that there really isn't much of this around. But when there is, find the enemy Gaw Gaw and swallow him up, because there's often something hidden in the dirt that could be useful. Unfortunately, this ability does not work underwater.
 Physical Appearance
Animal Kirby has a strange kind of headpiece that is designed to look like some type of animal. Kirby's arms have been covered with claws that are able to slash and grab enemies. His appearance is hard to describe in detail, so looking at the picture right may help.
