Buttonbugs are flying bee-like enemies from Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They are similar to Buttonbees, but are red and will actively chase their target. If Buttonbugs hit a wall, they will be stunned for a short time. Despite their more aggressive nature, Buttonbugs can be defeated using any normal move. When wrapped up into a Yarn ball, Buttonbug can be used as a homing projectile that splits into three when thrown.
Unlike its generally less temperamental cousins, Buttonbug is fairly rare, as it only appears in the Secret Island stage.
