Snip-Snap is a plant-like enemy from Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. It inhabits tunnels that Kirby or Prince Fluff can use the Snake transformation to pass through, and will chase them, preventing them from moving backwards without getting hit. If it pokes its head out of a tunnel, it can be defeated with the Yarn Whip.

In Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, Snip-Snap can be found in Stage 3 of the Sub-Game Slash & Bead, appearing in enemy ambush sections.
