Beanbon appears to be a vegetable root of some sort, or possibly a bean as its name suggests. It has a bulbous green body with two leaves poking out from the top of its head. Its feet are orange in color, and it has green, Kirby-like eyes.
Beanbon replaces Waddle Dee as the most harmless enemy in the game, as it walks around aimlessly. The creature can shoot explosive coconuts out of its head if given enough time alone, making it a bit more dangerous. Beanbons are often used in cutscenes or placed strategically to show the player a new hazard or action to perform.
Like Waddle Dees, Beanbons come in a variety of different sub-species and variants. Notable examples include Big Beanbons, Mummbons, Flappons, and Zombons. A giant Beanbon can also be encountered, but only in the Kirby Quest and Strato Patrol EOS sub-games.
