|This article is about the enemy from Kirby's Dream Land. For the similarly named enemy and Helper (in Kirby GCN) from Kirby Air Ride, see Flappy.|
Flapper is a black, small-bodied bat that has large wings, piercing yellow eyes, and ears with pink insides.
In Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, Flapper has a bigger, rounder body and more intimidating yellow eyes.
Flapper acts as an ally who appears at night, and, like Bronto Burt, helps Kirby get back on the course whenever he goes out of bounds.
Flapper's name is derived from the word flap, referencing the fact that it flies around by flapping its wings.
