Lola, also called Fofa in certain translations, is a minor character in the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! anime for the Kirby franchise. He is actually Lololo and Lalala's true form. His name comes from the first syllable of theirs merged together.

Lola makes his only appearance in the episode The Fofa Factor, which is also known as Lololo and Lalala, Melody of Love, which explains Lololo and Lalala's backstory. Lola is mentioned several times throughout the episode, but the Kittarihattari soon reveals how Lololo and Lalala came to be, much to their glee (rather than sadness as Tiff, Tuff, and their parents guessed) after it catches them with Kirby's twin halves in a hallway. The duo try to reunite by snatching the Kittarihattari's Sun Rod, and it tries to retaliate. The duo put Kirby back together, but then the Kittarihattari crashes the party. Kirby uses his inhale technique to swallow its Moon Rod, transforming into Cutter Kirby. With his Final Cutter technique, Kirby slices the Kittarihattari's body in two, killing it and erasing Lola for good as the Sun Rod was needed to restore him yet was destroyed with the Kittarihattari.

Trivia

  • The character is quite similar to Frisk from Undertale. Both characters go out of their way to help others, only to be punished by an antagonist (Flowey for Frisk and Nightmare Enterprises for Lola). However, Frisk manages to survive his ordeal unscathed, whereas Lola was sliced in two.
  • Lola is the only male character from the Kirby franchise whose name is feminine in English. This may be why he is called "Fofa" in certain English translations.
