The Metamato is an item in Kirby's Epic Yarn. It is a type of Food, however, it cannot be eaten during gameplay and only appears in the beginning cutscene of Kirby's Epic Yarn. The Metamato is a red yarn tomato with a green leaf top and a black "M" in the middle, highly resembling a Maxim Tomato. Kirby sees the Metamato and, thinking it is a Maxim Tomato, eats it. However, when he ate it, it turns out that the Metamato belongs to Yin-Yarn, a sorcerer who is later the main antagonist of the game. Angrily, Yin-Yarn transforms Kirby into yarn and sent him into Patch Land. In the new world, Kirby saw a blue boy being chased by a monster. Kirby tried to Inhale the monster, however, he has lost his ability to Inhale. Eventually, Kirby transforms into a Car and saves the prince. After this whole cutscene, the Metamato is never seen again the game.
