Leafan[Japanese title][1] (リーファン) is an enemy which debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It resembles a plant-like creature consisting of a bulbous, orange body or head with a pair of round, black eyes surrounded by a lighter shade of orange. Several green leaves are attached to its bottom and act as feet, while several more form a circle atop its head.

Leafan is first encountered in the second stage of the first level, Cookie Country, and continues to appear as a common enemy afterwards. When it first appears on the screen, a Leafan is usually located in midair, spinning the leaves on its head like a propeller in order to slowly glide down in a straight, vertical line. Once it has landed, the Leafan becomes an entirely stationary foe (although attacks may move it), choosing to attack Kirby and his allies with projectiles rather than engaging in melee combat; at regular intervals, it forms a bulb with its leaves, which quickly expands until giving way to two small, brown rocks or seeds that are harmful to touch and fly in an arc, eventually landing to the left and right of the enemy.

Leafan possesses little health and is vulnerable to any attack. Inhaling and swallowing one grants Kirby the Leaf ability.

Leafan has since appeared in both Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot, essentially unchanged in form and function.
