Digger is a transformation that both Kirby and Prince Fluff can take on in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn. The two can transform into this form by getting the relevant Metamortex. It first appears in Mole Hole, then later appears in Cool Cave and Sweets Park.

Physical Appearance

Kirby pilots a pink machine with red wheels, a yellow dome, and a brown drill. Prince Fluff has a blue machine with orange wheels, a yellow dome, and a brown drill.


While in this form, Kirby and Prince Fluff can dig through cotton blocks or crystals, and defeat enemies by pressing the 1 Button (Wii) or B (3DS). Movement while digging through cotton is much faster than regular movement. The Digger can cling to walls and ceilings made of cotton blocks i.e. moving up and down walls and hanging upside down. Pressing button 2 or A will make the digger jump up to a maximum height of just over two cotton blocks. Digging through the last layer of cotton blocks from below, however, will propel the Digger up to a height of just over three cotton blocks.
