|“||It's said that the huge Battybat guards a medal. I've heard he makes his home in a damp place, and there's a very damp spot around here where it rains. There's a cannon near that area, but don't use it, or you'll never find Battybat.”|

Battybat is an airborne enemy that attack the Kirbys by swooping and snatching one up in his jaws. When this happens, the other Kirbys have to attack him before he does sufficient damage on the Kirby he snatched. If Battybat misses the Kirbys, his jaws will get stuck in the ground, giving the Kirbys a chance to counterattack easily. Battybat first appears in Stage 4 of Green Grounds and reappears as a common enemy in Stage 7 of Dedede Resort.
Battybat is the largest in the long line of bat-type enemies. It shares many similarities with plain Gloomybats, but has a coloration similar to Battys from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. It is a round purple bat with pink eyes, a massive red leech-like mouth, and little pink horns.
- Battybat is the only large enemy in the series to be introduced before the smaller versions.
