Rolling Clod is a large spiked enemy from Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. He is essentially a large spiky boulder in a similar manner to a Gordo, though he is incapable of hovering and he can also be defeated. If Kirby or Fluff touches Rolling Clod, he will take damage. Rolling Clod can be defeated using the Weight move, but this will also harm the attacker. In most cases, true to his name, Rolling Clod can be seen rolling down slopes, but he can also be seen floating in wind currents.


Rolling Clod can be found in the following levels and stages in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn:
