Buttonflies are enemies making their first appearance in Kirby's Epic Yarn, and later reappearing in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They are non-damaging enemies and cannot hurt Kirby in any way (damaging him or knocking him backwards). All they do is fly around the screen in circles. They are toned-down versions of Buttonbees.

They can be defeated using any of Kirby's attacks; the yarn whip or his transformations.


Buttonfly can be found in the following levels and stages in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn:
