Efreeti is a Mid-Boss found within Kirby's Dream Land 2. 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. Efreeti yields the Burning ability when swallowed.
Kirby's Dream Land 2
Efreeti is the first Mid-Boss encountered in Kirby's Dream Land 2, first found in Stage 2 of Grass Land. It attacks by using flaming tackles of various kinds. 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.
In Kirby: Right Back at Ya!
Efreeti makes a brief appearance in the Kirby of the Stars Pilot, where it is one of the targets of Spark Kirby's attack. Efreeti does not appear in the proper anime series.
