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

Gator is a stationary enemy and hazard which only appears in Kirby's Epic Yarn and its port Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. He rests in the ground, opening and closing his 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 levels and stages in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn:
