Peran is a green Kirby-looking enemy with green feet and two small hairs coming out of the top of his head, appearing in Kirby's Dream Land 3. Peran hides behind walls and will occasionally peel away the wallpaper to spit blob projectiles at Kirby. If Kirby jumps and hits it from underneath, it will fly out of its hiding spot and hit the floor, spelling its doom. Peran can be inhaled, but Kirby will have to go near where Peran hides and wait for him to come out of hiding, then quickly jump up there and use his inhale move. Peran gives no ability.
Peran's name comes from the Japanese onomatopoeia for flipping paper, ペラペラ/ぺらぺら (Perapera); it may also come from the onomatopoeia for peeling something, ペリッ/ぺりっ (Peri).
- Peran's artwork lacks the hair it has in the game. It also appears greener than its in-game sprite.
