Gators are enemies from the Kirby series. They appear in Kirby Super Star, Kirby Super Star Ultra and Kirby's 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.


  • They have no arms or legs, yet in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra they have the ability to jump.
