Embirds are enemies in Kirby's Epic Yarn. They are small orange birds with yellow feathers and a yellow beak. They have purple eyes with a yellow pupil. These birds, hence the name, are on fire. They only appear in the boss battle with Hot Wings in Hot Land and are summoned by her. Embirds attack by simply flying in a straight path. As many as six Embirds can be on the screen at once. If Kirby or Prince Fluff are hit by an Embird, they will take damage and lose Beads. Embirds can be wrapped into yarn balls and thrown at Hot Wings to damage her.
- In the 2010 trailer for Kirby's Epic Yarn, Embirds used to become explosive rockets when wraoped into yarn balls and thrown at Hot Wings, however this was changed in the final version of the game.
