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

Gators are green, alligator-like 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. In Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra, they can only be encountered in The Great Cave Offensive and Milky Way Wishes. 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.
In the Kirby Mass Attack Sub-Game of Kirby Quest, a horde of Gators appears as one of Kirby's attacks.
Gator can be found in the following places in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra:
- They have no arms or legs, yet in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra they have the ability to jump.
