— Cutscene narration of Lickeur from Kirby's Epic Yarn

Lickeur is a large purple blob creature made of yarn which appears only in a cutscene in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. It is a rather large purple blob monster with three eyes, yellow spots along its back, and no limbs. It attacks by lapping up its target with its tongue (hence the name), though this does not seem to actually hurt the target. Prince Fluff is attacked in this way in the cutscene that plays after completing Patch Castle for the first time. Lickeur is defeated by Kirby who uses the Weight transformation to crush the blob. It then relinquishes the first piece of Magic Yarn, which the two intrepid heroes use to gain access to Grass Land.

Lickeur's name was not known until Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, where its likeness appears as one of the collectable Fuse Bead Mats.


  • Lickeur is the only enemy in the game who cannot be found or fought during actual gameplay. It is also the only non-boss entity that yields a piece of Magic Yarn when defeated.
