Barbar is an enemy that appears only in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Completely invincible, these enormous eels stay inside their dens most of the time. If Kirby or one of his teammates goes near one, it will try to eat him. If he does get eaten, he will start taking damage. Shaking the Wii Remote up and down rapidly will free him. There are two variations of the Barbar. There is a small one and a big one.
The smaller variety appear only underwater, where they wait in generally small corridors for prey to pass by.Larger, brown Barbars, called Iron Barbars appear in Dangerous Dinner, where they live in lava instead of water. Note that, since Kirby can't actually swim in lava, Iron Barbars actually lunge out of the lava and into the air.
