KDL3 Batamon Sprite.png Batamon is an elusive Kirby-like creature which first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land 3. Although it is pink like Kirby and of a similar shape, it possesses a few differences; most notably, its eyes are smaller, beadier, and significantly further apart than those of Kirby. It is also not as round as Kirby, and does not appear to share his abilities, instead simply acting like a Waddle Dee. Batamon grants no Copy Ability when swallowed.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land 3[edit]

Batamon makes its only appearance as an enemy in Kirby's Dream Land 3. In most levels where it is found, Batamon cannot be reached directly, as it likes to appear behind walls and in exterior spaces where Kirby cannot go. In some instances, it can be defeated using long-range attacks like Pitch-Spark, but this does not help Kirby in any way.

There is, however, one place where Kirby can meet up with Batamon in the same room. In Stage 3 of Cloudy Park, there is a hidden passageway behind the cloud wall at the 'end' of the stage, which Kirby can take to enter a room with a Batamon inside. In addition to this accessible Batamon, there are a bunch more of them occupying side-chambers that are inaccessible. Despite all of the trouble Kirby has to go through to meet up with a Batamon, he may be disappointed to find that there does not appear to be anything special about it, as it acts as a mere Waddle Dee copy, and grants no special abilities or bonus if inhaled or otherwise defeated.


In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Batamon can be found in the following levels and stages:

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

Batamon appears as a painting by Adeleine & Ribbon in Kirby Star Allies.

In Kirby Star Allies, Adeleine can paint a Batamon to fight for her, though all it does is walk back and forth for a few seconds, dealing small damage to enemies it comes into contact with before disappearing.


  • Batamon's artwork for Kirby's Dream Land 3 is very similar to the artwork of Shadow Kirby for Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, as both involve the main subject facing backwards and walking away with a similar pose.
    • Batamon's artwork for Kirby's Dream Land 3 is an edited image of the artwork of Kirby entering a door for Kirby Super Star and Kirby's Dream Land 3, while removing the door and adding a question mark next to Kirby.
