Cyclods are enemies that appear in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They are very similar to Uniclods, having the same body style, attack style and first stage appearance (Flower Fields); however a key difference between them is that Uniclods have horns, whilst Cyclods do not. Therefore Cyclods are non-damaging enemies. However, when Kirby is hit by a Cyclod's attack, he is still knocked backwards; similar to the attack of a Waddle Dee, but more powerful. Cyclods were created by Yin-Yarn to help him take over Patch Land. They can also sometimes be seen driving trucks.

Cyclods can be defeated in many different ways; with Kirby's yarn whip, or with many of Kirby's numerous different forms.

Its name is a play on "Cyclops" and "clod" (a stupid person); also, "clod" is a cognate of "klodde" ("rag" in Dutch), reflecting to the yarn and fabric theme of the game.


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