Wappa is a yeti-like enemy in Kirby's Dream Land 3. It is an oval creature with long, white, shaggy fur that covers most of its body, leaving only a pair of round, black eyes and two flat, brown feet visible.

Wappas appear in various stages of Cloudy Park and Iceberg. They move by slowly trotting in a straight line. When Kirby goes near a Wappa, it curls into a white ball and rolls at him. Wappas move around faster this way than their walking pace. Like most enemies in the game, Wappas harm Kirby on contact. Kirby use any attack to defeat a Wappa, and if he inhales a Wappa, Kirby obtains the Ice ability.


In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Wappa can be found in the following levels and stages:
