|His bite is dangerous, but he can't do much with a closed mouth!|

Gators are enemies from the Kirby series. They appear in Kirby Super Star, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They are green, alligator-like enemies that like to feed on Kirby's health. In Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra, if a Gator spots Kirby, it jumps on him and attempts to bite him. They bite several times in a row, causing a lot of damage to Kirby.
In Kirby's Epic Yarn, there is another enemy called Gator, though it behaves in a much different way than its Super Star counterpart. It rests in the ground, opening and closing its mouth on a regular interval. If Kirby lands on an open mouth, he is damaged. However if he lands on a mouth while it is closed, it can be used as a platform to help him jump higher. Gators can be defeated using Kirby's yarn whip or other attacks.
Gator can be found in the following places in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra:
