Waddle Doo’s signature move has become yours! Send out a electrical whip in front of you to wipe out foes! It’s got a nice range to it, so don’t hesitate!

It’s time for a Kirby rampage! Certain special enemies allow Kirby to use this one-time-use power. When activated, everything on screen is subjected to countless Kirbys and is destroyed!

Obtained from:

Bomber

Poppy Bros. Sr.

Paint Roller (bomb)

Cutter

This ability is cool and all, making it so that you can toss boomerangs out in front of you to damage foes, or hit foes from behind if you jump over the returning boomerangs, but where exactly does Kirby even KEEP these boomerangs, anyway?

Obtained from:

Sir Kibble

Fire

This one’s a real classic power. Gain the breath of dragons as Kirby learns how to spit fire! Attack with a steady stream of flames, and even gain the power to light cannon fuses!

It’s time to make everything just chill out for a little bit. Attacking with this will cause a radius of frost to radiate from Kirby, turning anything that touches it into ice cubes! Best used when sliding!

Hammer

One of the most powerful weapons Kirby can add to his arsenal! Break special blocks, pound in wooden pegs, and deal loads of damage to bosses! You can even attack underwater, so it’s quite special!

Ice

This move is just like the Fire ability, except with icy effects! Breathe out a steady stream of frosty breath and turn everyone in front of you to solid ice cubes! Kick them around for extra fun.

Laser

A strong, ray of light bursts from Kirby’s eyes after he eats a Laser Ball! Use these laser beams to ricochet off angled walls, light certain fuses, and just in general look pretty dang cool.

Obtained from:

Laser Ball

Light

So, you’ve found yourself in a pesky, dark room, and you can’t exactly see where the ground is. By using the Light ability, you can turn on the lights and make everything visible! How convenient.

Obtained from:

Kirby’s never gonna stop practicing his singing skills! Whip out the microphone and let it rip, as Kirby’s voice will hurt everything on the screen! You’ve got three chances to use it, too!

Obtained from:

This ability sure does rock, if I do say so myself! While a stone, you’re totally invincible to even spikes! Get above whatever you want to crush, whether it be an enemy or a peg, and come crashing down on them!

Obtained from:

Sword

Kirby’s tried and true weapon of choice! Swing it to deal damage to whatever’s in front of you, and use it underwater to make attacking enemies a breeze!

Obtained from:

Throw

Kirby’s decided he’s had enough of eating things. When you inhale with this ability, he just chucks everything right back! Thrown foes go in a straight line, so aim appropriately! You can take out special blocks with this, too!

Obtained from:

UFO

It’s the elusive UFO ability! Become a mysterious flying object and unleash a series of different electric beam abilities that depend on how long you hold the button down, and float all over the screen as you do so! But wait, this UFO isn’t unidentified, we all know it’s just Kirby! I suppose “Identified Flying Kirby” wasn’t quite as catchy of a name.

Obtained from:
