Worst Kirby Copy Abilities

The Top Ten

1 Sleep

This is by far the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in my life. IT DOES NOTHING. It is the perfect ability for Kirby pedos who are waiting to ATTACK poor innocent Kirby when he's sleeping! And what are you supposed to do when a waddle DEE comes up and kills you? A waddle DEE! Waddle DEE! Who would want to be killed by an enemy that simply walks around naked?! I beseech you; don't copy this ability because you WILL regret it. I'm lucky that I haven't been killed while using it yet... - Qadzooks

I agree! Sleep ability needs to be replaced by something, like triple slash. - GigaDrill

I don't even know what the crap this is supposed to do for you. all I see is Kirby goes to sleep and then... Nothing. don't even copy this. just spit the stupid thing out as a star. its much more effective - llamabaconllama37

Let's face it. The sleep ability is down right terrible. It has no use and is more of an obstacle than a power up. The only time it does come in handy is if you want to get crushed in a side-scrolling level. Come to think of it, I don't think anyone wants to do that.

What even is the point of this ability? Did they put it there to troll players? I'm that type of person that wants to get things done, and this ability just wastes my pink puffball time.

2 Copy

Why does this even exist if Kirby's main purpose is to eat enemy's and COPY THEIR ABILITY

Boring. Kirby can already do it so what is the point (aside in milky way wishes)

"Kirby copies abilities. why should he need a copy ability that copies copy abilities? It has the Coolest look in all the copy abilities, tough, and the helper is great, but nothing' else

Even the fact that Kirby can copy things doesn't really matter. Kirby should stop copying abilities and instead fight with his Robobot Armor. Hal Laboratory is unable to accept small changes like this because they worry they'll lose their tiny fanbase of 7 year olds who don't know how to write a long game review yet. - GigaDrill

3 Cupid

Only really required once in squeak squad.

Really babyish, and not that strong - GigaDrill

It is good but, It is annoying how other kirbies have the cupid ability in Amazing Mirror

4 Wing

This can actually be really helpful in some ways like if your flying you can shoot at enemies above your head

The Wing ability makes you look like an Indian that can fly.

Most attacks are boring I only used it in gourmet race.

Actually a pretty good ability, fast, swift and very effective. - GigaDrill

5 Jet

This ability inspired jay jay the jet plane (kirby super star was released in 1996,jay jay the jet plane didn't exist until 1998. - Villainnumberone

Really hard to control and its just for flying faster anyway.

Why is this so high? Jet is a great ability. - Garythesnail

Jet demolishes bosses, though... - mattstat716

6 Metal

You go SO SLOW UGH. but not the worst.

You're not even completely invincible! And floating is just a nightmare. - Garythesnail

Slower version of stone!

Move faster kirby!

7 Mini

Just used for gaps. No attacks.

Only used for like, 2 puzzles in the amazing mirror and never seen since. - PrinceBlu

Just no

Bland! - GigaDrill

8 Parasol

I disagree. In Kirby's Return to Dreamland it has long range, breaks fire blocks, protects you from enemies above you, and let's not forget down attack. - Qryzx

The only thing you need that umbrella for is when it's raining and it almost never rains in Kirby games so this umbrella is useless!

Parasol is amazing because you can float in the air!

I don't agree either. You don't even have to attack and it deals damage.

9 Suplex

Actually a really neat ability, Suplex can make you beat the daylights out of your enemies - GigaDrill

Backdrop is worse. - mattstat716

Are you crazy once I swallowed buggsy and I became suplex kirby and I was unstoppable

How is it bad

10 Light

This ability is easily the worst. It does nothing if you aren't in the dark, and even in the dark, it is see-able without light!

Not the worst, there are much more useless ones than this, it is helpful in the dark... but it isn't useless!

Well guys, paint is being upgraded in star allies!

Not even required to beat the game. - LittleAwesomeApple

The Contenders

11 Melting Ice Block

I can't comment on the others so I'm just going to say it here. The copy copy ability isn't that bad. In fact if Kirby comes back in Death Battle and fans of the other person say "Kirby can't suck them up", then we respond with,"Okay, all he has to do is scan him with either the copy copy ability or the Robobot armor" And then Kirby will have their Powers and be able to improve them and destroy the other person.

Low ranged attack power with a boring looking animation that can only be made by two GOOD abilities? Joy.

There's really no point in ever using this ability, as it has awful range, doesn't look any cool, and is just all around awful.

You turn into an ice block... and melt. What?

12 Ball

One of the STUPIDEST and WORST abilities ever created. Since when does a Pink Ball need an ability to turn into one? And it only works in closed places with no pitfalls...EXTREMELY OBSOLETE

Sure it's hard to use, but it's a great boss killer if you master it.

Too hard to use; only use in case of suicide

How are Suplex (base Kirby on stetoids) and Metal (where only bosses and minibosses hurt you) higher on this list than Ball? This is among the worst-controlling abilities in the series in my opinion.

13 Plasma

I love Plasma, but I have to say it is a little OP. - Garythesnail

Its broken and noobs use it. but the problem is you attack by... using the control pad and not the buttons if you have played SS or SSU

... It's spark, and heavily nerfed. - mattstat716

14 Dynamite

The Rock and Bomb combo in Kirby 64. It damages all enemies on the screen, but it can even hurt you if you forget to wear the hard helmet.

WORST kirby 64 mix ability - PrinceBlu

15 Hi-Jump

Wow it's weaker than sleep

Can Olny hurt large and air born ene

I used Hi-Jump to defeat KRACKO! 😠

16 Clean

Cleaning in star allies is op dash+attack midair is very fun and well op

It appears higher on the list as broom. - Villainnumberone

What's clean? Oh yeah the BROOM!

Because it's a baby ability. :P - GigaDrill

17 Broom

It's callled cleaning and it's useful to give bluster or splash to your allies and for sweeping leaf piles. - Villainnumberone

TF this is useless only useful with Nago, never use this one.

18 Beam

Beam was kinda mediocre until Super Star. Then it got really strong with its new moves. - Garythesnail

What's so bad about beam ability. I am completely used on beam

Beam isn't really that bad, it's Masahiro Sakurai's favorite Copy Ability. But it's cooler in Robobot Mode, though the Robobot beam's moves are a bit too limited. It just shoots out big balls of light. - GigaDrill

19 Mirror

Mirror is an EXCELLENT ability. You just don't guard. Oh, and invincibility frames. - mattstat716

Is it bad I like mirror? D:> - Mariomaster63

Mirror was the best in Kirby Super Star Ultra. - GigaDrill

This is my favorite power! Are you kidding me!

20 Esp

Sad it only has 2 moves in Star Allies, but still far from the worst. - Qryzx

If this ability comes from Ness, it should have more moves. - GigaDrill

It’s Mva (most valuable ability)

21 Tornado

How is Tornado in 23? It should be far off from this list, because it is broken like hammer, spark, wheel, and missile.

22 Normal

Because it has no ability

23 Fire

Why does it do so little damage ;-; - Blueberrycheerios

Fire is not good. No matter what you say, it will never be powerful in the state it is in.
It's normal move immobilizes you to stand still, and only attack in one direction in a limited range.
It's burning attack has tons of opportunities to be hurt when it fades out, causing for lots of unneeded damage
Fire roll has the same problems as above
Mid air move is good, I'll give it that, but there's still much better opportunities for mid airs, like Ice, Beam, and Stone.

24 Circus

Looks really stupid, and Circus makes you go backwards while doing a jumping stunt. And I HATE clowns! - GigaDrill

It's a finnicky ability. It's cute to look at, but... - mattstat716

It's just really useless and it looks stupid.

Did You Know? That Circus Kirby First Came From The Japanese Anime Opeining.

25 Cutter

I can only remember one good thing about this ability.


How to be good with cutter

Turn away from enemy
Spam B
Hold up

KILL EVERYTHING. - mattstat716

26 Hammer

THIS is a good ability. - Mariomaster63

Because Dedede is the worst Kirby character. - GigaDrill


27 Poison

Actually one of the best ones, you can slide across platforms and spit out huge blobs of purple goo! - GigaDrill

Its not too bad against susie and haltmann

28 Backdrop

Backdrop is stupid. All you do is just dash foward, grab an enemey and smash it to the floor. Don’t get me started on bosses! All your doing is waiting and waiting and waiting for an attack. Its very stupid

29 Bubble


30 Refrigerator

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! The food does DAMAGE! (and you get THREE health back if you eat all the food)

Cute, but not that useful unless you have low health

31 Magic

This is good:doves,cards,and the top hat. - Villainnumberone

32 Wheel

Wheelie rider is fine but wheel Kirby isn't.

RoboCar was really neat, and Wheel Kirby is pretty good... - GigaDrill

33 Doctor
34 Archer
35 Lightbulb

Only used for 1 puzzle in 64. obtained when getting bomb and electric ability - PrinceBlu

36 Crash

Despite the massive damage this ability deals, it can only be used once, making this ability pretty pointless in my opinion.

I know it kills every enemy in the screen,but you only can use it one time.I know it's op,but enemies reset in kirby games after you don't see their "spawn" points.

37 Leaf
38 Balloon

Balloon is probably the hardest ability to control in Canvas Curse, you inflate kirby by tapping him, he gets bigger each time until he pops. As I said, very hard to control. Just use Wheel instead.

39 Sword
40 Ice
