— Patch Plaza description of UFO from Kirby's Epic Yarn
UFOs are flying saucer shaped enemies. These enemies lurk in hidden rooms throughout the series, and can be said to be a rare enemy. They can be seen hovering above the ground, and may fly away if not consumed by Kirby. Once consumed, they give Kirby the U.F.O. Copy Ability, which allows him to shoot lasers or a beam at his foes. In most of its appearances, if UFO is dispatched or if Kirby goes far off screen, it will never reappear if scrolled back.
UFOs display a number of different behaviors. They can often be seen zipping about at very high speeds, and may crash into Kirby before he has time to react. They can also fire lasers, similar to the Laser Ball.

Kirby's Adventure/Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land
UFOs first appeared in this title. They are often found in hidden side-chambers, and once they vanish or are defeated, will not appear again unless the stage is exited and re-entered. Only on rare occasions are they found out in the open in regular stages. Unlike most enemies, UFOs have a special sound they emit when flying around.
UFO can be found in the following levels and stages:
|UFO locations in Kirby's Adventure & Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land|
|Stage||Vegetable Valley||Ice Cream Island||Butter Building||Grape Garden||Yogurt Yard||Orange Ocean||Rainbow Resort|
Kirby's Pinball Land
UFO appears in this game as part of the middle board of Wispy-Woods Land. It appears based on certain slot machine results, and travels between the two holes. If collided with, it is defeated, yielding either 1000, 1500, or 2000 points. It also appears in the ending enemy parade after defeating King Dedede, dropping a Warp Star for Kirby to start again.
Kirby's Dream Course
UFOs are among the enemies that Kirby can collide with on courses in this title. When he bumps into one while not in possession of another ability, he will transform into a flying saucer, allowing him to move freely about in the air, though unable to move up or down while in saucer form.
Kirby's Block Ball
UFO appears as a common enemy in this game, and is worth 600 points on defeat. It drops the Block Flip item.
Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
As in Nightmare in Dream Land, UFOs are uncommonly found in some of the rooms around the Mirror World. They behave the same as usual.
Kirby: Squeak Squad
UFO retains its character and rarity in this title, though its value is somewhat diminished by the presence of Doc, who can also provide the U.F.O. ability.
UFO can be possessed by Ghost Kirby. When possessed, UFO can be made to fly around, fire a laser blast, and veer in a random direction briefly whenever the 'jump' button is pressed.
Kirby's Epic Yarn/Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn
UFO appears in this title, though the lack of Copy Abilities makes it a neutral creature. It appears rarely in Space Land, though it can appear in large numbers during the Rocket and Star Shooter sections. If Kirby uses his Yarn Whip to roll UFO into a ball, throwing the ball will create three homing projectiles that target nearby enemies.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe
UFO does not appear as an enemy in this game, but it does appear in the Goal Game, where it will deposit items for Kirby when he lands on a cloud higher than 7.
Kirby: Planet Robobot
UFO also appears once again in the Goal Game.
Kirby Battle Royale
UFOs appear in the Ore Express battle mode, in the Twisty Tunnels and Logjam Pass stages. They carry ores and need to be struck to drop them.
