Mirra is a rare enemy exclusively found in Kirby & the Amazing Mirror. Its appearance is that of a blob-like, yellow creature with two big, black eyes and a small mouth. It dwells in the frames of mirrors, the game's equivalent to doors, and appears to be fused to them initially.

Mirras are unique enemies in that they do not attack Kirby; instead, they simply keep him from entering the mirror they occupy for as long as they reside in its frame, remaining entirely stationary like the object they are fused to. If the pink hero performs an attack or dashes within a Mirra's sight, however, it panics and quickly escapes by burying itself and the mirror in the ground (also happen if the area shakes, by burning or wheel Kirby hits a wall), leaving the latter entirely inaccessible for as long as Kirby remains in the same section of the stage. In order to get rid of it and be able to enter the mirror, Kirby must either approach it slowly before swiftly attacking, assault the Mirra from afar (by spitting something at it or using a ranged ability, such as Cutter or Fire) or defeat it faster than it can notice him, which can occasionally be accomplished with speed-increasing abilities such as Burning or Wheel, but may not always be successful. Once overcome, the Mirra is separated from the mirror, flying away and exploding.

While vulnerable to most Copy Abilities and projectiles, Mirras are immune to Kirby's sliding attack and cannot be inhaled, thus yielding no ability. A defeated Mirra does not respawn unless Kirby leaves the section and enters it again.
