Bun is an enemy that appears in Kirby: Squeak Squad. Buns resemble two-footed, rabbit-like creatures who have large ears (which double as arms). Kirby must make sure he does not get too close to one, as if he does, that Bun will grab him, spin him around several times, and then throw him. Buns give Kirby the Throw ability when eaten.
Bun looks like a red rabbit head with two orange shoes. Its color scheme is much like that of a Waddle Dee. Its face is even lighter than the rest of its body, with a pale light pink coloration for its face. Its ears double as arms, and the ends are more spherical and resemble hands. Bun is one of the few enemies that Kirby needs to Super Inhale, for it is too heavy to inhale normally.
Bun's name is a shortened version of bunny, referring to the enemy's rabbit-like appearance.
- Bun is the only normal enemy that gives the Throw ability.
- Bun can be possessed by Ghost Kirby, and can grab and throw any enemy, including others of its own species, and can withstand several hits from enemies. It only throws enemies straight, and the thrown enemies have no effect on anything else from enemies to blocks. It can't pick up blocks, and it is unknown if it can pick up mid-bosses' ammo, as no Buns inhabit the same room as a mid-boss.
