Efreeti is a Mid-Boss found within Kirby's Dream Land 2. It is the first Mid-Boss encountered in that game, first found in Stage 2 of Grass Land, and yields the Burning ability when swallowed.
Efreeti is a creature with a spiny-haired black body, red feet and two small yellow eyes. It is slightly larger than Kirby, and attacks by jumping about, and careening forward in a similar manner to the Burning attack. If it hits a wall, it will rebound, and drop a Recoil Star, which Kirby can use to deal it damage if he has no ability.
