Best Kirby Copy Abilities

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Master

'Sure its only in one game, but why on Earth is this lower than Sword? It's near identical to sword but has more moves such as an upward stab and a sword wave, as well as being able to break Hard Blocks, light fuses, pound Pegs, AND cut ropes. This is definitely VERY close to Smash in being the best ability.

The ultimate ability. Maybe that's why Meta Knight is such a badass. - Mewbosses

Even if it is restricted to only one game, it is by far the most fun ability.

This is by far the strongest ability... I mean Sword-Beam!

22 Beetle

Beetle is a disgustingly strong ability in the same vein as Hammer and Tornado. It possesses a highly varied and efficient arsenal that includes a multislash combo, a dashing slice attack, upward and downward horn drill maneuvers, and the throw attacks of the Suplex ability from Super Star. What makes Beetle so effective is the extreme quickness of its attacks combined with the invincibility frames that many of them create; you can demolish enemies in seconds without ever being open to take damage.

Here's an empirical example of how strong Beetle is in comparison to other melee powers: when it was introduced in Kirby Fighters, its attacks were given startup lag and lower invincibility frames. It had to be severely nerfed in order to avoid becoming THE most dominant power in that game, in an environment that contains such powerhouses as Fighter, Hammer and Bell.

Beetle is hands down, my favorite Copy Ability. It is Incredible in Melee attacks and solves quite a few puzzles. It also has a very cool Hat, probably my 2nd favorite hat in the game (Next to Mike) And overall a powerhouse in every way - ChiefMudkip

Holy crap dis ability is so OP and is returning in Battle Royal.

Beetle may be strong, but...
It's not FUN. I don't feel like I'm having FUN. - mattstat716

23 Suplex

I like suplex because there are so many ways to throw enemies! It also cause's GREAT damage when one enemy lands onto another after throwing it!

Kinda mediocre, basically an aim-able star spit, but you can't move

Whaat are you kidding this should be first he is unstoppable fyi swallow buggsy to get it

You mean backdrop? Okay, first off; Backdrop is trash.

You lunge. That's it. If you miss, you're wide open and you will fall either into a pit or die by an enemy. - mattstat716

24 Cupid

Arrows are awful, though. - mattstat716

Cute.. - Super64Mario

So adorable and fun! You dress up in an angel costume...
"Hello there, super evil guy! I am harmless little angel guy who is adorable so don't mind me! "
"Okie dokie! "

Easy to steer in the air and you control love. >:) I like to shoot two enemies and they both die its hilarious. 😂

25 Fire
26 Refrigerator

Really. Ice + spark, I think? - mattstat716

27 Ghost
28 Rocket Launcher

That is not an ability, take it off the list

Take that off the list it is not an ability

It's a mix of bomb and bomb.

It's actually a 64 ability. - mattstat716

29 Spear

It can be a throwing spear, a stabbing spear, a pass through walls spear, and a helicopter! Wait. what?!

You can be a heli! What's not to like about that?!

... what. - mattstat716

30 Throw

Throw is kinda lame. And so is his ability! Throh: Hehehehehe!

This ability is not that bad.
It can actually shatter bosses if you nail a jump + grab into them. You're literally INVULNERABLE, you DECIMATE them, and then you have Pinpoint Kick. Just... pinpoint kick.
BACKDROP, however... - mattstat716

31 Stone

Crushing enemies is already awesome, and you can be so many statue things, but the best part about it is that once you turn into a stone, you are INVINCIBLE! That's awesome. Which is why I always use it. Well, ALMOST always. But anyway, it's awesome.

Prove me stone ability is used for beginners because pressing the attack button will turn you into stone. All enemies will not attack you

This power was boring until Kirby 64 gave you GOLEM KIRBY. And in Return to Dream Land and Triple Deluxe you can ROCK UPPERCUT.

I love it cause my first Kirby game was superstar ultra, and I fell in love with the helper rocky

32 Ultra Sword

Even though its not available very often and lasts for a limited time its super strong, amazing to watch, and destroys everything it hits.

33 Mike

Usually the stuff I vote for is at least in the top 10, and I actually expected this to be #1, it is very classic... and definitely one of the best, maybe not the best, because you can only use it three times then its gone, but still I believe it to be the best... I mean #1 is smash... Whats smash? Some of you new Kirby players probably think I'm insane but serouisly... What is smash? I really only play old-school Kirby games (Like Kirby and the amazing mirror and Kirby's nightmare in dreamland) But still this is only #25?! At least make it in the top ten! NOW I'm RIGHTING IN CAPS LOCK SO YOU PEOPLE WHO don't EVEN READ COMMENTS USALLY (like me) WILL READ IT! IF YOU JUST READ IT WITHOUT NOTICING THE CAPS LOCK GOOD FOR YOU... That was a long message

... Sir, you play amazing mirror, yet have never used Smash? Sure, you 100% played that game. - mattstat716

I love Mike! He's so cute and loves singing! Just like me! Except he's cuter! He is so powerful too! He can blast sound waves and make a building collapse!

I love Mike's voice! He is so cute and powerful! To me, Mike should be #1! Come on people out there! Don't you think Mike is a cutie? Vote for him!

34 Whip

Whip is amazing because of rapidly whipping and far range attacking. can also be used to grab stuff and can also be used as a short ranged attack. Try kirby's 20th aniversary and on the 2nd land one of the forms is whip. Also try out smash, leaf, fighter, wing, sword, and tornado for rapid attacks and great and powerful powers of kirby. Probably in my opinion #10 or #9 in best kirby forms of all time. This should be at least in my opinion #10 on THIS list so please vote for that awesome whip kirby. - rexprice4

THE BEST copy ability is this, not only do you get to change into a cowboy but you get an AMAZING amount of power. And that whip tornado, well, you know what happens

Whip's not THAT fun, to be honest...

I mean... it's fine, but... really? - mattstat716

35 Star Rod
36 Needle

Needle and spark are both really good defensive attacks and they can be used offensively as well.

This ability was a bit meh... Until Kirby's RtD! Now you can throw spikes in all directons! Awesome with bosses and really fun to use. It was really sad that it wasn't in Kirby Planet Robobot... Do you prefer "Circus" over the best ability EVER?!

37 Ninja

Me and my sister abused this power in Return to Dreamland. Just hearing it gives me nostalgia.

In Squeak Squad it's great! Oh. I'm Jesus too? Nice!

38 Missile
39 Animal

Very usable in a verity of situations, including digging. Tell me anoughther that can do that! Even if it was only in squeak squad, I still love it. Besides, Kirby turns in to a wolf, HOW AWESOME IS THAT FOR YOU?

40 ESP

This is such an amazing ability, psychic balls of doom, absolutely impeccable range and power. What's not to love?! Not to mention ' teleportation to add to your arsenal.

It's got a giant ball of death, teleportation, and a Ness hat, what more do you want, yeah flying powers too.

Teleporting, relatively safe damage (floating while basic attack), what more do you want!

This ability got me thrugh the arena and most of the true arena
Most of the bosses are too stupid to even jump and try and kill me so it's easy to just hold b for a few sec and put in on the boss BOOM
The only bosses that are actully jumps to get me are Dede Clone, Glactia night, and president Haltman
(If you don't know what game I'm talking about its Kirby planet robobot)
