Candlemander is a red salamander-like foe which crawls along the wall in certain stages of Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. It has a single eye, off of which a trail of flames can be seen. It patrols back and forth, and if threatened, it will turn into a fireball and pursue Kirby for a short time, then return to its initial position.
