This master shoots out balls of energy. Get up close and take him out!
— Dandan's Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn

Dandans are common enemies appearing in the game Kirby's Epic Yarn. They first appear on the Big-Bean Vine level and make many appearances thereafter in other levels, such as Cool Cave and Tube Town.


Dandans are stout, yellow birds with orange beaks. They have white and black button eyes and wear a green headband.


Dandan's only form of attack is spitting a blue ball of energy, and these can be wrapped up into a yarn ball and thrown back at Dandan. He can only attack sideways, however, so the player can stand on Dandan without danger. Dandan takes a long break in between attacks, and only attacks when the player gets fairly close but his projectile can travel a very long distance.
