— Patch Plaza description
Amprey is an invincible eel-like creature that appears in Kirby's Epic Yarn and its remake. It is a relatively large enemy with a purple body, yellow button eyes and green fins. Amprey's body also flashes bright green and purple due to its electricity. Attached to an Amprey's tail is a line of three large beads which Kirby or Prince Fluff can collect without taking damage. However, if they collide with the rest of the Amprey, they will lose some of their beads. Encountered exclusively in Deep-Dive Deep in Water Land, this long purple fish swims circles around set features of the landscape.
Amprey gets its name from the words "ampere" and "lamprey" fused together in a portmanteau. The ampere is a measure of electric current, and a lamprey is a form of jawless fish that resembles an eel.
As mentioned above, Amprey appears only in the stage Deep-Dive Deep.
