Ebifryer is a large shrimp monster which emerges from a fried prawn prepared by Chef Nagoya for King Dedede after a liberal amount of hot sauce was added. The creature is covered in breading and has large claws as well as a single eye on its head and a mouth emerging from the center of its body. Ebifryer attacks using its claws and fire breath from its mouth.

Ebifryer appears very briefly in the episode A Chow Challenge. After being sent as a seemingly normal seafood ingredient by Night Mare Enterprises and cooked in a dish by Chef Nagoya, the monster emerges from its fried state and attacks Kirby using its claws and fire breath. Tiff tosses a soup ladle at Kirby to give him the Cook Copy Ability, and he uses the frying pan to reflect Ebifryer's fire breath and quickly defeat it.
