This thief steals beads and disappears if you touch him!

Sneak Sack is a bag-shaped enemy which appears in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. He has a single button eye and pants continuously as he constantly runs around. While active, he will attempt to run away from Kirby and Prince Fluff, and will disappear after a short while if not defeated. If defeated, he will drop plenty of beads. Sneak Sack can be found on occasion by unraveling a Swadclod.

Along with his appearance in the main game, Sneak Sack can also be found in the Sub-Games Dedede Gogogo and Slash & Bead in Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. In Dedede Gogogo, he will typically run away from King Dedede when approached, but can be chased down to obtain beads. In Stage 4 of Dedede Gogogo, multiple Sneak Sacks will run toward King Dedede and some even jump onto him from the edges of platforms. There is only one Sneak Sack in Slash & Bead, and it is encountered in Stage 2. It remains in place until Meta Knight draws near, at which point it will attempt to run away. Before it runs offscreen, Meta Knight can defeat it by slashing it with his sword or by using his Special.


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