Dweller of the deep, this monster uses his light to distract his prey!
— Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn

Danglerfish are rare enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn and its remake, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They only appear in the Deep-Dive Deep stage.

Three giant Danglerfish also appear in the same stage.

Physical Appearance

Danglerfish look like giant purple fish with a purple illicium and a glowing yarn ball at the end. They have gray teeth, purple fins, and a green tail fin. Danglerfish have two purple and yellow button eyes.


Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn

Danglerfish attack Kirby and Prince Fluff by sucking them up. If a Danglerfish manages that, it will spit them out and the heroes will lose beads. If Kirby or the prince moves away from the Danglerfish after it begins its attack, it will tire and Kirby and Prince Fluff can latch onto the illicium of the enemy and snap it back at it, defeating it. However, the giant Danglerfish that chase Kirby and Prince Fluff cannot be defeated. Instead, the heroes will need to swim out of its way. Interestingly, Danglerfish, being made out of yarn, can inhale a large amount of water but Kirby loses his inhalation-based Copy Abilities due to inability to contain the inhaled air in yarn form.
