Nago is one of Kirby's Animal Friends, debuting in Kirby's Dream Land 3, which remains his only major game appearance to date. He is a large cat-like creature with a similar body shape as Rick, but with a pair of short legs instead of the hamster's big, round feet. His feet are not normally visible unless he is moving. Although his fur is mostly white, he possesses orange and brown markings on the top of his head and on his back, as well as brown ears and a stubby, orange tail. This gives him a resemblance to a Japanese Bobtail with a calico coat, though calicos are primarily female.
