Kapar is a Kappa-based enemy debuting in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It is round and green, possessing a yellow beak and a pair of tiny, circular, black eyes, as well as flipper-like arms and two dark green, flat feet with three toes each. On its head, a round, yellow bulge surrounded by a wreath of pointed, green leaves can be seen, mimicking the bowl of water traditionally said to reside on a Kappa's head.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Dream Land 3[edit]

In-game sprite

In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kapars can be found in and outside of water throughout the game.

On land, the foe initially stands in one place, waiting for Kirby to approach it; when he does, the Kapar leaps straight into the air. As soon as it reaches the same height as Kirby, it momentarily falls down again and afterwards tosses its wreath of leaves in a straight line, only to repeat the procedure a few seconds later. In water, Kapars instead swim after Kirby and may throw their corona at any time.

Touching either the Kapar itself or its weapon causes Kirby to take damage. The enemy can be defeated using any attack or inhaled and swallowed for the Cutter ability.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards[edit]

Kapar returns in this game, appearing in 3-D for the first time. Kapar mainly stands in place, and jumps fairly high to throw its cutter ring at Kirby when he approaches. As before, Kapar can operate both on land and in water. Kapar appears on the 43rd Enemy Info Card.

A larger mid-boss version of Kapar appears in stage 3 of Aqua Star. This Kapar sits at the left end of the room and occasionally throws a cutter boomerang at Kirby while Bumbers appear and float downward from above. These Bumbers can be used as ammunition against the Kapar to defeat it.
