— Place a Patch • Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn

An Area Patch is an item appearing in the games Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. These can be obtained by completing a level and can only be used in their corresponding world (an Area Patch obtained in Grass Land can only be used in Grass Land). These will cause something to happen on the overworld and will unlock new areas to explore and levels to complete.
