In-game sprite.

Babut is an enemy first appearing in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It resembles a black bat with red wings and ears, as well as a red nose and a pair of white, glowing eyes. It possesses no visible legs. Babuts often hang from the ceiling in caves, and attack Kirby when he comes too close, by biting Kirby while holding him in place. Unlike most other enemies, Babuts, due to their way of attacking, cannot be destroyed simply by touching them, unless Kirby is invincible while doing so. They are, however, vulnerable to all other attacks. Inhaling and swallowing a Babut does not grant Kirby a Copy Ability.

Game Appearances

Kirby's Dream Land 3

In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Babuts are seen for the first time in the fourth stage of Grass Land. When Kirby encounters them, they are initially hanging from the ceiling upside-down, where they remain perfectly still. If he gets too close to a Babut, however, it becomes attentive and begins to flutter through the air, only turning around when it collides with a wall. Although traveling in a primarily horizontal pattern, it slowly moves either downwards or upwards while doing so, depending on whether Kirby is below or above it. If a Babut manages to reach Kirby, it bites him and drains half a point of energy from his Vitality bar, in addition to freezing him in place while sucking his life. Once it has finished its meal, the bat slowly flees from Kirby, before taking up the chase once again as soon as it flies into an obstacle.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Babuts make a reappearance in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, where they are typically found in caves, especially those that are completely dark. Babuts attack Kirby by capturing him and chewing him, and Kirby cannot get out until the player shakes the Wii Remote or pushes the D-pad rapidly in several directions.
