Leafans are enemies in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Leafans are small reddish blobs with two black eyes in the center of their white face. They have several leaves fanning out from the center of their heads. Leafans also stand on four leaf feet, which they can use to slowly float in the air. These enemies are somewhat common in the game. Most of the time when Kirby and his buddies (Meta Knight, King Dedede, Bandana Waddle Dee) near a Leafan, it will be found slowly floating towards the ground. As soon as the enemy lands on the ground, it will start firing brown seeds from its head. Any hero who touches these seeds will take damage and lose any Copy Ability they were currently using. Some Leafans, however, are encountered already on the ground or on a Star Block, where they will immediately start shooting seeds when the heroes get near. Leafans can be defeated. If Kirby Inhales a Leafan, he will receive the Leaf Copy Ability.
