This guy loves his burning lifestyle and definitely hates water.
— Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn

Embas are rare enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn and its remake, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They first appear in Lava Landing and then return in Temper Temple and Meta Melon Isle.

Physical Appearance

Embas are large red and orange flames with a small mouth and red and black button eyes.


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

Emba's only attack is trying to burn Kirby and Prince Fluff by touching them. The only way they can be defeated is by using the Fire Engine form and continuously spraying them until they disintegrate; before they disintegrate, however, the water gradually shrinks them in size, making them a harder target to hit.


Emba's name is a corruption of the word "ember," which is essentially what it is.

Its Japanese name, ヒノコ (Hinoko), comes from the Japanese word for ember/spark, ひのこ/火の粉 (Hinoko).
