He loves to play hide-and-seek! Try to find him and his friends!
— Cast quote from Kirby's (Extra) Epic Yarn.

Zeke is a monkey-like creature that appears in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. After Kirby and Prince Fluff properly decorates Apartment 102 with the Flower Sofa and the Flower Clock, Zeke will become a tenant. He will play a minigame with Kirby called "Zeke's Hide-and-Seek". In these minigames, Zeke and his friends will split up, and Kirby must find them throughout levels that Kirby has already completed in a designated amount of time. The reward for completing each level of the minigame is Fabric. After completing a minigame level, another one will become available, providing the stage the game is held in has already been played through. There are 18 levels in all.

Zeke's name is based on "seek", fitting for his hide-and-seek minigames.
