|The big one? That's Orabiroo. The O is for, "OH my gosh, look at how high they can jump!" Try not to be under one when they land. Their fellow critters like to pet them because they're so fluffy. (Don't touch the tail. They hate that.)
— Figure description segment from Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Orabiroo is a large, purple rabbit-like enemy and member of the Beast Pack with long ear-like appendages stemming from its snout, having made its first appearance in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. It tends to either sit in place or hop up and down continuously until it spots Kirby, from there hopping after him. Orabiroo attacks by quickly leaping over Kirby and then falling down after a short pause with a ground pound. Orabiroo requires multiple attacks in order for it to be defeated, which will reward Kirby with a green Star Coin. Orabiroo grants no Copy Ability if inhaled.
