Flapper is a flying bat-like enemy found in very early Kirby games. It flutters back and forth, mainly in dark rooms, and can be hard to detect. It may also occasionally pursue Kirby.

Appearance and behavior[edit]

Flapper resembles a bat, though with particularly large wings compared to body size. It is entirely black, with few features visible aside from the massive wings. This dark coloration makes it tricky to spot in the gloomy areas it often resides in. Flapper can be seen flying at modest speed in straight lines, but it may instead pursue Kirby slowly.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land[edit]

Flapper makes its first appearance in this title, appearing mainly in Castle Lololo. It is not a particularly common enemy, and is worth 400 points when defeated.

Unlike some other enemies, Flapper is not replaced by another enemy in the Extra Game.

Kirby's Pinball Land[edit]

In Kirby's Pinball Land, Kracko occasionally conjures a Flapper to trip up Kirby with, as opposed to the Waddle Doos it normally conjures. These are worth 2400 points when hit.
