Don Puffle[Japanese title] (romanized from the Japanese ドンパフル (Donpafuru)) is a small floating enemy which debuted in Kirby Star Allies, which provides the Festival Copy Ability when ingested. It resembles a colorful round bird with a party cone for a mouth and a bow-tie. It attacks by flying in toward Kirby or by shooting confetti out of its mouth. It has 32 HP, a bit bulkier than most common enemies. (For reference, a Star Bullet does 52 damage and Waddle Dee has 12 HP.)

Unlike most other ability-providing enemies in Star Allies, Don Puffle cannot be made into a Friend. Tossing a Friend Heart at it will cause it to transform into the Festival ability hat instead.


Don Puffle can be found in the following stages:
