— Candlemander's Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn

Candlemanders are semi-common enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn. They first appear on the Mole Hole and later in other levels such as Cool Cave and Dino Jungle, and levels that require the use of the Digger form.


Candlemanders are red lizards with a yellow flame. They have blue button eyes. Their appearance and abilities reference the ancient fire mythology[1] associated with salamanders, that is associated with fire.


A Candlemander's only form of attack is transforming into a fireball and trying to hit Kirby. While a fireball, they are invincible. These enemies can easily be wrapped up and thrown. Alternatively, Kirby and Prince Fluff can defeat them in Digger form.
