Devil

This article is about the enemies that appear in Devilish Mode in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, and should not be confused with Devil Frog or Devil Kirby from the anime.


The Devils are a trio of enemies that appear exclusively in the Devilish Mode of Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. The Devils warp in at various intervals and pursue Kirby relentlessly, causing him to lose a Life Piece if they hit him. The devils cannot be permanently defeated, and can only be temporarily driven off by striking them with a Yarn Ball or other projectile. None of them can be affected by the Yarn Whip on its own.

Notably, each type of devil is capable of flying through walls in pursuit of Kirby. However, they will be unable to reach him if he slips through a door or pocket into the background, and will become confused, looking around to see where he went. If a devil is hit, they will drop a number of beads before disappearing. Each subsequent hit will yield less beads however, until hits no longer produce beads at all.

Types of Devils

There are three different variants of Devil in the game, which are as follows: (Check their main articles for the lists of stages they appear in.)

Me-Devil

This is the first and most common type of devil encountered. It attacks by flying over Kirby's head and trying to drop spiky balls on him. The balls do not attain these spikes until they are dropped, and can be destroyed before this point.

Ye-Devil

Ye-Devils wear drills on their heads, and will attempt to charge Kirby with a sudden flying maneuver.

We-Devil

We-Devils can fire lasers from their tails which are fairly slow but fairly accurate.
