|“||Red means DANGER. This bug will chase you down, so be careful!”|
|— Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn|
Buttonbugs look like their other counterparts. They are red buttons with transparent wings, a black pattern on their back, black antennae, and a stinger. The stinger looks like a Soocher's spike.
Unlike Buttonbees and Buttonflies, Buttonbugs will chase Kirby and Prince Fluff until it hits something or it is defeated. If it hits a wall, they'll be stuck for a while and lose their stinger. When wrapped up into a yarn ball, it will become three homing projectiles when thrown.
They only appear in the Secret Island level. They are the more aggressive than Buttonflies and Buttonbees.
