Leafan is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. In yields the Leaf ability when inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Leafan is a stumpy, brownish-red blob with beady eyes and large green leaves fanning out from the center of its body.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Leafan floats down from the sky like Bumber from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and, upon landing, will start to launch seeds out of its head. Sometimes, Leafans can be found already sitting on the ground. If Kirby touches a seed, he'll take damage.

Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition

Leafan appears in the New Challenge Stages mode, specifically in the Smash Combat Chamber.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Leafan leaps into the air and floats back down after each seed attack. Bulby, another Leaf-yielding enemy in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, does not appear in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, making Leafan the only source of the Leaf ability in this game.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Leafan is slated to appear in this game.


Leafan's name seems to be derived from the words leaf, referencing the enemy's greenery, and fan, referencing the fan-like shape of its leaves when drifting through the air.
