Batamon is a Kirby-like enemy from 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 signifcantly further apart than those of Kirby. They are also not as round as Kirby.
In most levels where they are found, Batamon cannot be reached by Kirby, as they like to appear behind walls and in exterior spaces where Kirby cannot go. They 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. The main Batamon acts like a Waddle Dee, and will hurt Kirby if it crashes into him. Kirby can swallow Batamon, but no ability will be gained in the process.
In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Batamon can be found in the following levels and stages:
