|— Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn|
Jelly Jrs. are common enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn and its remake, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They first appear in Blub-Blub Ocean and appear in the later water levels such as Deep-Dive Deep and Fossil Reef.
Jelly Jrs. resemble the other Jellies, although these ones are significantly smaller. They are white jellyfish with four pink tentacles and two blue button eyes.
Jelly Jrs. attack by electrifying themselves. If Kirby or Prince Fluff were to come in contact with one or even trying to Yarn Whip one while electrified, the two will be hurt and lose beads. These enemies can easily be wrapped up or defeated by Dolphin Kirby when not electrified.
Jelly Jr.'s name comes from "Jelly," referencing its species as a jellyfish, and "Jr.," referencing it as a smaller individual.
Its Japanese name, クララゲ (Kurarage), comes from the Japanese word for jellyfish, クラゲ/くらげ/海月/水母 (kurage).
