The Soldiers are four different types of squarish humanoid enemies in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn that wield several weapons. They mostly appear in Treat Land and are very similar to Mariners.


Soldier types in Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn  
Type Caption Description
KEY Sword Soldier screenshot.jpg
Sword Soldier
"I bet this guy wouldn't be such a big shot without his sword!" The Sword variation of the Soldiers yields a sword that, when provoked by Kirby or Prince Fluff, twirls his sword and charges forward, waving his sword around. Kirby can use his Yarn Whip to grab the sword and throw it back at the Sword Soldier, and any enemy or block behind it.
KEY Spear Soldier screenshot.jpg
Spear Soldier
"This soldier wields a spear... Do you think he gets paid more than the Sword Soldier?" The Spear variation of the Soldiers has a long spear that he uses to run into Kirby and stab him, making him lose beads. Like the Sword Soldier, Kirby can grab the Spear Soldier's spear and throw it back.
KEY Cannon Soldier screenshot.jpg
Cannon Soldier
"This soldier has a cannon, so you better look out! Those shots are dangerous!" The Cannon variation of the Soldiers has a large cannon on his head that he can use to shoot the heroes. Unlike the previous two variations, the Cannon Soldier's projectiles can't be grabbed by the Yarn Whip. This soldier also cannot be disarmed.
KEY Whistle Soldier screenshot.jpg
Whistle Soldier
"This soldier can call for help, so be sure to deal with him quickly!" When a Whistle Soldier sees Kirby, he blows on his whistle and calls other types of Soldiers to come and help him. If there is a Whistle Soldier, Kirby has to dispose of him quickly or else there will be more trouble with other Soldiers.
