Danglerfish are enemies in Kirby's Epic Yarn. They are giant purple fish with a purple illicium (which has a glowing yellow ball/light at the end). Danglerfish have gray teeth, purple fins, and a green tail fin. Danglerfish have two purple and yellow eyes. Danglerfish only appear in Deep-Dive Deep of Water Land. Three giant versions of Danglerfish appear in the same level. Danglerfish attack Kirby and Prince Fluff by sucking them up. If a Danglerfish succeeds in trying to suck them up, it will spit them out and the heroes will lose Beads. If the heroes move away from the Danglerfish when it begins it sucking attack, it will tire out and stop sucking water. While the enemy is tired out of sucking water, the heroes can latch onto it's illicium and snap it back into the enemy, defeating it. However, giant Danglerfish, which chase the heroes eating anything in its path, cannot be defeated. The heroes must instead move out of the enemy's way or otherwise be eaten up. Surprisingly, Danglerfish, being made of yarn, can swallow large amounts of water, while Kirby loses his ability to Inhale due to the inability to contain the inhaled air in yarn form.
