Is it possible to discard one or some of your purchased KEEP cards? And if I can, do I need to pay energy? And at which stage of the turn will I be allowed to discard?

As thier name implies, purchased "Keep" cards are kept for the remainder of the game.

Just curious, can you give example of why you would want to discard one? Seems to me if you don't want to use one you just don't use it. Is there one that is bad that makes you use it?

The only way to ditch your Keep cards (using just KoNY cards), is the Tesla Cannon.
Costs 5, EVERYBODY loses a Keep card.

Unlike KoT, there are a a few 'cursed' Keep cards. They're cheap, and give good bonuses now, at the cost of a permanent downside.
*Overload, costs 0, gives +4E now, but you get 1 less E anytime you would gain some.
*Natural Selection, costs 2, +4E, +4H, Extra Head effect. BUT If you ever end a roll with a [Star], you lose all your Health.
*Terminal Rage, costs 4, Take an extra turn right away, but you MUST always keep all Claws you roll.

My thought is, if you don't like the cards enough to keep them, don't buy them.
