Embaconda is a flying snake made of fire from Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. Embaconda can typically be seen flying in circles, often through grates. Like its simpler Emba cousins, it poses a constant touching hazard to Kirby and Fluff, and can also be defeated using the Fire Engine Metamortex. When sprayed with water, its segments will be destroyed one-by-one, dropping whatever items were inside in the process. Further spraying will fully destroy the creature, which may yield some Treasures.

In Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, Embaconda can be found in Stage 2 of the Sub-Game Slash & Bead. It appears primarily during enemy ambush sections where it flies from offscreen around Meta Knight. Meta Knight can defeat it by slashing it with his sword or by using his Special.


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