Festival[title based on internal game data] refers, in addition to the eponymous Copy Ability, to the enemy that provides it, debuting in Kirby Star Allies. It is known as ドンパフル (Donpafuru) in the Japanese version. This enemy resembles a colorful round bird with a party cone for a mouth and a bow-tie. It attacks by flying in toward Kirby or by shooting confetti out of its mouth. It has 32 HP, a bit bulkier than most common enemies. (For reference, a Star Bullet does 52 damage and Waddle Dee has 12 HP.)

Unlike most other ability-providing enemies in Star Allies, Festival cannot be made into a Friend Helper. Tossing a Friend Heart at it will cause it to transform into the Festival ability hat instead.
