Sword Soldiers are enemies in Kirby's Epic Yarn. They are one of the four soldier enemies in the game (the others are Spear Soldiers, Cannon Soldiers, and Whistle Soldiers). Sword Soldiers are the main type of soldier enemy. They are rectangular creatures with a red and black body, a red and black eye, a black smile, and a golden sword. These enemies first appear in Toy Tracks, then later in Melody Town and Stellar Way. Sword Soldiers attack Kirby or Prince Fluff, by running towards them while wrecklessly slashing their swords. If one of the heroes comes in contact with a Sword Soldier while it is doing so, they will take damage and lose Beads. These enemies can be defeated and wrapped into yarn balls. If one of the heroes jumps on a Sword Soldier's head, it will look confused.
