This snapper lives in tight spaces. It can stretch like you wouldn't believe!
— Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn

Snip-Snaps are enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn and its remake, Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn. They only appear in the Cool Cave, Splash Beach, and Tube Town levels.

Physical Appearance

Snip-Snaps appear as long, yellow, extendable cords with a yellow claw at the end. On top of the claw is a red button.


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

A Snip-Snap will only attack Kirby and Prince Fluff if they pass over its territory, which will always appear as a small, shallow hole in narrow tunnels. If the Snip-Snap grabs one of the two while they are in their Snake form, they will be dragged back to their starting point and lose beads. If they come in contact with a Snip-Snap outside of Snake form, they will be knocked back and lose beads. In Tube Town, if a Snip-Snap is led to an outlet, it will transform into a plug and either move or change the yarn platforms that look like cathode ray traces. Whether plugged into an outlet or not, a Snip-Snap can be unraveled by using the Yarn Whip on its button, but a new one will come out if the player passes by the same territory again.
