Ancient is a yellow Puffball and a friend of the main characters.
Ancient, based on Keeby from Kirby's Dream Course, is basically the same as Kirby, but much smarter. He also has the power of another form of Copy Essence Deluxe, where when he inhales a foe, such as Sir Kibble, he can then can use Cutter whenever he wants to. He can also summon helpers.
Ancient currently works on the Halberd, as Meta Knight's assistant.
- When he has a copy ability, the tips of his hat change. For example, with Cutter they become small boomerangs, with fire they become flames, with Needle they have spikes on them, etc.
