Babuts are enemies in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. They are small, black, blood-sucking bats. Babuts have tiny white eyes and an orange snout resembling that of a human nose or pig snout. They have black and red wings. Also, the inside of their ears are red. Babuts are not very common enemies, however, some can be found in Raisin Ruins. Babuts can at first be sleeping dormantly on the ceilings, however, when Kirby or one of his buddies (Meta Knight, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee) happens to pass underneath one, they will wake up, swoop down, and chase after him. If Kirby or one of his buddies comes in contact with the flying Babut, it will latch onto him and drain his health. However, if a Babut does not catch Kirby or one of his buddies and instead hits a floor, cliff, or wall, it will fly off in the opposite direction. Babuts can be defeated and Inhaled, however, no Copy Ability is granted by doing so. Babuts also appear in the Wing challenge in the game.
