Donpuffle resembles a small, circular bird with orange feet and a red bow tie. It has two small, white wings toward the middle of its body. Wide red and blue stripes surround its body, separated by gold stripes. These stripes leave a star shaped hole on the front of its body to leave room for its face. It has gradient blue purple eyes, and a horn for its combined nose and mouth.
Donpuffle is first found in Donut Dome and appears in later stages. It hovers in the air, occasionally blasting dust and confetti out of its horn as an attack. Many enemies often appear around it so Kirby can effectively use the Festival ability without leaving the area. Due to their ability's purpose being to buff the player, Donpuffles are somewhat rare.
- Donpuffle is one of the six enemies in Kirby Star Allies that grants an ability, but cannot be captured with a Friend Heart; the other five being Noddy, Walky, Bomber, Shield Guard, and Floaty the Cell Core.
