|This master shoots out balls of energy. Get up close to take him out!|
— Patch Plaza
Dandan is a fighter-type enemy which appears in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, and can be first seen in Big-Bean Vine. He sits in place and will attempt to fire a blue energy blast at Kirby when he approaches. Getting hit by this energy blast will harm Kirby, but it can also be captured using the Yarn Whip and tossed back at Dandan. Dandan himself can also be rolled up directly.
The energy blasts that Dandan fires are similar to the Force Blasts that Fighter Kirby can utilize in other titles, and in turn are likely based on a 'Hadoken' from the Street Fighter video game series.
