Knows that a gentleman must train to be healthy! Can you complete his program?
— Patch Plaza description

Buster is a minor character who appears in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. His name comes from the verb "bust", meaning "to defeat".

After buying the third floor on the apartment in Patch Plaza, Kirby can meet Buster after placing certain furniture items in his room. When he shows up he can challenge Kirby to a minigame. What makes his minigame unique from the other neighbors' is that Kirby must defeat a certain number of enemies within a time limit by any means. Also, like the other neighbors, he gives Kirby a reward of Fabric, that can be used as wallpaper or carpet for Kirby's Pad, when Kirby successfully accomplishes his minigames.
