Kirby's Return to Dream Land artwork
Leafan is an enemy that appears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, and Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It is a stumpy, brownish-red blob with beady eyes and large green leaves fanning out from the center of its body. 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 or one of his teammates touches a seed, he'll take damage. When swallowed, it grants Kirby the Leaf ability.
In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Leafan will leap into the air and float back down after each seed attack. Bulby, another Leaf-yielding enemy in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, was not included in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, making Leafan the only source of the Leaf ability in this game.
