Tankbot is a Metamortex transformation featured in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. It turns Kirby and Prince Fluff into a large round vehicle which somewhat resembles them in body shape. In this form, they have the ability to fire an unlimited number of missiles and hover for a short period of time, though the Tankbot has a limited jumping range.

In two-player mode, the character who did not grab the Metamortex can control a punching glove at the side of the Tankbot. The punching glove protects from enemies by rotating around and bashing them and can also be fired as a controllable missile. Only the player who touches the transformation symbol drives the Tankbot.

Meta Knight gives Kirby and Prince Fluff the Metamortex for the Tankbot form when they are about to fight Mega Yin-Yarn.
