This creature lives deep in the ocean. Don't be shocked if you see it!
— Amprey's Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn

Ampreys are rare enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn. They only appear in the Deep-Dive Deep stage.

Physical Appearance

Ampreys are purple eel-like creatures. They have green fins and a green tail fin. They have a blue dot design on them and they have two yellow button eyes.


Ampreys do not attack. They move in a set pattern and in a set direction. Ampreys have beads on their tails, which can be collected. Coming into contact with any part of the creature except the tail will hurt Kirby or Prince Fluff. They cannot be defeated.


Amprey's name is a portmanteau of Ampere, the unit for electrical current, and lamprey, an eel-esque fish.
