Orbitfly is a small flying button enemy from Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. It is the last of the four different types to be discovered (the other three being Buttonfly, Buttonbee, and Buttonbug) and is found in space stages like Stellar Way and Outer Rings. They can be seen flying in various formations in large numbers, prompting Kirby to shoot them down with either the Rocket or Star Shooter transformations before they crash into him. Defeating every Orbitfly in a particular formation will yield a larger number of beads then defeating them individually.
In Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, Orbitflies can be found in every stage of the Sub-Game Slash & Bead. Here, they also fly in formations, often toward Meta Knight, and are encountered primarily in enemy ambush sections.
Orbitfly can be found in the following levels and stages in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn:
