Whistle Mariners are enemies in Kirby's Epic Yarn. They are one of the four types of Mariner enemies in the game (the others being Sword Mariners, Spear Mariners, and Cannon Mariners). While Sword Mariners are the most common of all types of Mariner enemies, Whistle Soldiers are the rarest of them all. All types of Mariners (including Whistle Mariners) only appear in Boom Boatyard of Water Land. Only two (or three) Whistle Mariners appear in the entire level right before the boss battle with Blast Mariner. Anyway, Whistle Mariners are blue and white creatures with white arms and feet, a blue and white eye with a black pupil and a black mouth. They wield a gold/yellow whistle. They do not attack at all. When a Whistle Mariner spots Kirby or Prince Fluff, they will blow their whistle, causing Sword Mariners (and possibly Spear Soldiers) to fall from the sky and attack the heroes. Afterwards, they pull out a flag and begin cheering and dancing. Whistle Mariners can be rolled up into a yarn ball and thrown. This is useful to get rid of the Mariners they have summoned. A Whistle Soldier is a Whistle Mariner's slightly more common "brother". Whistle Mariners will have a confused look if jumped on.
