|“||His bite is dangerous, but he can't do much with a closed mouth!”|
|— Gator's Cast Description • Kirby's Epic Yarn|
Gators are fairly large, green alligator heads with mouths pointed upwards. They have rows of sharp teeth between their jaws and buttons for eyes.
Gators constantly open and close their mouths; this is their only real form of attack. When their mouths are open, Kirby or Prince Fluff can be damaged by their teeth, but Kirby can stand on the tip of a Gator's closed mouth and use it as a stepping stone to higher places.
