Emba is an animate ball of fire from Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn and Kirby's Epic Yarn. He floats about and will attempt to approach Kirby or Fluff if they get near, damaging them on contact. Emba can be doused and defeated using the Fire Engine Metamortex. If not fully doused, however, he will slowly return to his original size.

In Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, Emba can be found in Stage 2 of the Sub-Game Slash & Bead. Here, Meta Knight can defeat it by slashing it with his sword or by using his Special.


Emba can be found in the following levels and stages in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn:
