Player 2 needs to be present for Prince Fluff to visit Kirby's Pad, and Zeke, Beadrix, Carrie, Buster, and Mara have a chance to visit Kirby's Pad after completing any level, including previously completed ones, as long as their apartments have already been unlocked. There is little interaction between Kirby and the visitors, however, but Kirby and Prince Fluff can still stand on and throw each other around. The other visitors show a minor reaction when hit with the yarn whip but mostly float about minding their own business despite their greeting revolving around asking Kirby whether he has time to play with them. After all of the sub-games given by either Zeke, Beadrix, Carrie, Buster, or Mara have been completed, that character will give Kirby his/her secret fabric during his/her next visit to Kirby's Pad. The secret fabrics all have the motif of the character giving it to Kirby.
Pressing ↓ near a couch, bed, or chair in Kirby's Pad will have Kirby sit down instead of crouching, and he will doze off after a while and wake up on his own. Kirby's Pad (and the roof of the apartment building) is the only place where Kirby can sit down and sleep in the game. The only way to crouch in Kirby's Pad is to initially have Kirby moving, then holding ↓, and then releasing the ← / → keys.
In Kirby's Epic Yarn, the player is able to freely take screenshots anywhere in the game and post them on the Wii Message Board. (The player could also send these posted pictures to other Wii consoles using the internet, but this feature was disabled when WiiConnect24 was shut down.) This feature was implemented as a way to showcase Kirby's Pad creations.
The European Kirby's Epic Yarn website displays 15 pictures of Kirby's Pad decorated by Nintendo employees.
