Red means DANGER. This bug will chase you down, so be careful!
— Buttonbug's Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn

Buttonbugs are rare enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn. They only appear in the Secret Island level. They are the more aggressive than Buttonflies and Buttonbees.


Buttonbugs look like their other counterparts. They are red buttons with transparent wings, a black pattern on their back, black antennae, and a stinger. The stinger looks like a Soocher's spike.


Unlike Buttonbees and Buttonflies, Buttonbugs will chase Kirby and Prince Fluff until it hits one of them or it is defeated. When wrapped up into a yarn ball, it will become three homing projectiles when thrown.
