Then you dot the eyes.
Add a great big smile
And presto, it's Kirby!

Kirby is the titular pink puff and the main protagonist of the Kirby series of video games named after him. The series has been running for over two decades, and nearly thirty titles have been released under Kirby's name, most of which are developed by HAL Laboratory, Inc. or published by HAL for co-developing studios.
Kirby has been featured in his own anime series, many manga publications in several countries, and even an educational video co-starring Mario. The Kirby series is frequently merchandised by Nintendo, although most of its products are only released in Japan.
Kirby lives in his dome-shaped home in Dream Land, a country on his home planet Planet Popstar. His adventures take him throughout his planet, distant star systems and occasionally other dimensions for various reasons, and he is known as a hero ever beyond his universe.

Attack Potency: Multi-Solar System level (Defeated Magolor and destroyed the Master Crown, which led to the collapse of interstellar parts of Another Dimension, including the 15 areas where the Sphere Doomers were fought, which are all respectively interstellar in size and at least take place within the same universe [See note below]. With help from the player, he defeated Drawcia, who warped massive portions of space in Kirby's galaxy into paint. Able to defeat Star Dream Soul OS in all his forms, who was capable of rotating space, including the multiple stars and nebula in the background. Weapons, Boost Orbs, Final Weapons, and Super Abilities effectively boost Kirby's destructive power even further), able to negate durability with various copy abilities or even base powers | At least Multi-Solar System level (Defeated Void Termina while assisted by other 3 Star Allies, those being comparable to Kirby in power, also on his own overpowered Void Termina's energy beams several times during his last form, later creating projections of most of his friends to launch at Void Termina and finish him off, killing him. Able to defeat and kill all other stronger incarnations of Void Termina shown, which is also suggested to be while assisted by other Star Allies. Weapons, Boost Orbs, Power-Up Hearts, Final Weapons, and Super Abilities effectively boost Kirby's destructive power even further), able to negate durability with various copy abilities or even base powers
Speed: Massively FTL+ (Keap up with, and defeated, Dark Rimuru, Dark Rimura & Dark Rimuro, who flew past 8 galaxies in 7 seconds [3606645657.1442c.] while chasing Ribbon, defeated many Dark Matter more powerful than them, and can travel at comparable speeds than Ribbon. Kept up by himself with Meta Knight, Nightmare, Dark Mind, Dark Nebula and Void Termina several times; all of which are comparable in speed to the Warp Star, which Kirby is capable of flawlessly piloting and controlling while reacting and dodging obstacles and projectiles. Chased & kept up with the Jamba Hearts several times, which were suddenly scattered across the universe. Presumably launched Marx from a moon to NOVA, who was at interstellar distances. Repeatedly outran waves that were consuming interstellar parts of Another Dimension, which were moving fast enough to get past stars and nebulae in the background, as well as keeping up with the Lor Starcutter and Landia. Able to redirect a world destroying meteor 9999 light years in seconds. Was able to keep up with other beings capable of travel interstellar distances with ease, such as 0, Galactic Nova, Marx, Galacta Knight, Dark Nebula, Lor Starcutter, Landia, Master Crown-powered Magolor, Dark Crafter and The Three Mage-Sisters. Quickly went from Nova's summoning point at galaxy's end to Popstar at the at the edge of the universe, using his Starship to do so and reacting to it on his own. Can move even faster with Invincible Candy, Dash Shoe, Boost Orbs and Power-Up Hearts for a limited amount of time)
Striking Strength: Multi-Solar System Class | At least Multi-Solar System Class
Durability: Multi-Solar System level (Able to survive Drawcia's interstellar deletion wave. Took hits from Magolor. Can tank blows from enemies of equal power to him in their bloodlusted states. His durability is enhanced further with copy abilities made for durability augmentation), regeneration, Ghost form, self-healing, and self-resurrection make him difficult to kill | At least Multi-Solar System level (Able to take blows from Void Termina in all his forms and incarnations. His durability is enhanced further with copy abilities made for durability augmentation), regeneration, Ghost form, self-healing, and self-resurrection make him difficult to kill
Stamina: Very high (Kirby is seldom seen pushed to exhaustion even when fighting abominations through several phases. Fought Queen Sectonia straight through the entire night). Unlimited as Ghost Kirby (Continues fighting after being defeated as Ghost Kirby, has no health bar in-game)
Range: Standard melee range by himself and most copy abilities with weapons (Kirby is 20cm tall). Extended melee range with some projectiles and inhale (His inhale can also suck things bigger than his body without problems). Higher with Boost Orbs (Some of them increase the range of his attacks). Interstellar with meteor summoning, projectiles and shockwaves (Presumably launched Marx from a moon to NOVA, who was at interstellar distances. Batted a meteor lightyears away).
Standard Equipment: Despite not being visibly carrying them, he has shown to have a cell phone to call a Warp Star, a cell phone to call other 3 Kirbys and a handkerchief. Can spit numerous small stars and bombs
- Optional Equipment: His magic sock to travel to Patch Land, the Tankbot and a robot dragon. Game items such as Superspicy Curry, Mint Leaf, Maxim Tomatoes, Reviving Tomato, Invincibility Candy, Robobot Armor (Planet Robobot and official art), Miracle Fruits, Action Star, Replica, Balloon Bomb, Cracker, Timed Dynamite, 3D Helmet Cannon, Invincible Candy, Jumbo Candy, Microphone, Invisibility Stone, spikeless Gordo, Team Cannon, Boost Orbs, the Blaze Wheelie and a miniature Heavy Lobster (Kirby Battle Royale). While he can use Copy Abilities naturally, he has the following functions to help him even further; Copy Essence Deluxe, Copy Palette (Always has it to store things in his stomach dimension, but it does not always have items in it, at least in-game) and Ability Scrolls. Multible armor & weapons (Up to Team Kirby Clash Deluxe), as well as hundreds of Gem Apples (Used by the Kirbys in the Dream Kingdom) | As before, a bat and an ax. Game items such as the Dream Rod and any armor & weapon
- Can Create/Summon: The Warp Star (Can both create and summon it on his own), the Starship, Gooey, Dyna Blade, an army of Gators, a meteor | As before, the Star Allies Sparkler (although he created the latter under specific circumstances)
Intelligence: Genius. Was capable of building a functional space rocket in seconds, which he then used. Showed creative ways of using new copy abilities to beat some bosses, is consistently capable of defeating ancient and/or skilled warriors such as Meta Knight, Nightmare, Galacta Knight, Kracko, Whispy Woods, Queen Sectonia, Landia, Parallel Landia, Magolor Soul (who is Magolor possessed by the ancient Master Crown), Coily Rattler, Hyness and Void Termina, the latter two having existed for eons. In combat he has been shown sending enemy attacks back at them using both sheer precisions as well as unexplored powers
Weaknesses: Kirby is naive outside of combat, and despite his age, he's still a young boy. Unlike fellow warriors in his verse, outside of his adventures, Kirby's lazy and always relaxes with mundane activities
Keys: Pre-Star Allies | Post-Star Allies
Note: Given Another Dimension's portrayal as a multiverse in Kirby Star Allies, it's possible for the areas where the Sphere Doomers were fought to be separate universes. This would exponentially increase the power, speed and other stats of many characters in the verse, but the matter remains unclear until a confirmation may arrive (Further points that support this are also already acknowledged).
- Defeated Nightmare, whose death explosion destroyed part of the moon.
- In Super Star and Super Star Ultra he can crack planet Popstar in the Megaton Punch mini-game.
- In Amazing Mirror he can crack the planetary counterpart of Popstar in the Crackity Hack mini-game.
- His Ultra Sword was stated to be a "legendary planet-cleaving sword". Can harm Magolor Soul by himself, who is superior to its previous form, which could withstand several attacks from the Ultra Sword.
- Survived at the center of an explosion large enough to eclipse a planet with no notable damage in Triple Deluxe.
- Drilled through a clockwork planet using the Robobot Armor in Planet Robobot. It was strongly implied that the majority of that attack power came directly from Kirby, not the armor.
- His Platinum Lord Hammer was stated to have once cracked the world with a single swing. Can exchange blows with those who can endure attacks from it.
- Defeated foes capable of creating black holes, which he resisted several times.
- Resisted Schwarzs' (2.8843015e37 Joules/5-A), notably he was divided and reduced to fractions of his power at the time.
- Resisted Sphere Doomers EX's (2.6330626e37 Joules/5-A)
- Defeated Marx (6.510611e37 Joules/5-A), notably Kirby is also able to beat his Soul form, whose black holes are considered stronger.
- Defeated Magolor (3.0601196e37 Joules/5-A), notably Kirby also defeated his Crowned form, whose black holes are stronger, as well as his Soul form, whose black holes even warp the background of the battlefield, which contained stars and a massive portal to another universe.
- Tossed Dedede into space.
- Launched Marx from a moon to a mechanical planet, which was this far.
- In Star Allies he can bat a meteor that was threatening the world thousands of lightyears away in seconds in the Star Slam Heroes mini-game.
- Threw Yin-Yarn from Popstar to another planet in Epic Yarn. Said planet is never depicted as being near Popstar in other games.
- Defeated many foes considered ancient or who had lived since ancient times, such as Whispy Woods, Kracko, Landia and Magolor possessed by the Master Crown (and by extension Parallel Landia, Parallel Woods and Parallel Kracko). Kirby contends with the former two regularly.
- Is also able to defeat Galacta Knight.
- Repeatedly faces Meta Knight in battle, always defeating him in canon even when the latter's power is amped by outside sources; Meta Knight's age was portrayed to be thousands of years in the anime.
- Nightmare was portrayed as just as old as Meta Knight in the anime as well, with Kirby defeating him once in the canon and another occasion in a mini-game.
- Kirby also defeated Dark Meta Knight and Parallel Meta Knight, alternative versions of Meta Knight.
- Defeated Hyness, who lived for eons.
- Defeated Void Termina, who existed for eons and is the origin and ancestor of "dreams, darkness, soul, heart", "all chaos and possibilities", albeit his intelligence seems to reset every time he reincarnates himself.
No Copy Abilities
Powers & abilities few characters have in the verse, or that Kirby has on a higher scale.
|“||Kirby inhales everything he can!||„|
|~ Kirby Star Allies loading screen|
- Inhale: Kirby begins sucking in air to quickly suck in small obstacles and most enemies around his size. He can then choose to spit them out as Star Bullets or swallow them completely, allowing Kirby to copy their powers. He can also suck in air and wave his arms around to puff up and float into the air, allowing him to imitate flight or to increase his buoyancy, and spit out the air as an air puff attack. Kirby has been shown to suck things bigger than his body, as well as surrealistically have them inhaled without send them to his stomach, such as when he inhaled a whole energy beam being shot at him for seconds, to then spit it, still as an energy beam (while he had an ability that improved his inhale at the time, that is unrelated to the size of the things he can have in his body without swallowing them).
- Star Spit/Star Bullet: (Also called Puff Out in the past.) Kirby spits the inhaled foe(s) and/or thing(s), the latter being turned into a small star. The originally inhaled things being turned into stars is supported by all the statements about this technique doing this, as well as its name. The more things Kirby inhales into a singular Star Spit, the more powerful it is, as well as bigger. Kirby can also spit things without turning them into stars (in which case he wouldn't be using the Star Spit technique), he can do this with allies to damage foes during team battles.
- Blaster Bullet: In Blowout Blast, when Kirby inhales enough enemies, the star he spits becomes a powerful shot called a Blaster Bullet.
- Copy Ability: Kirby's most famous power, the ability to use powers that are copied from other beings or things. Normally, Kirby uses Copy Abilities by swallowing foes (or things), thus transforming into the Copy Ability corresponding to the target, even if this makes new ones. Kirby can also naturally access to at least all of his regular Copy Abilities at any time, without needing to swallow targets. He does this to test his skills with them, and rarely to immediately take advantage of the specific powers they grant him (for reference, the latter strategy is only common for the non-canon Kirbys in Super Smash Bros and Mo~Pupu!). His most impressive abilities have allow him to do things such as stop time and turn the relatively simple things he paints into reality.
- Note: While it's repeatedly said that enough damage can take away Kirby's Copy Abilities and this, in turn, is a valid weakness for other versions of the character, this is not the case for Kirby in the practice due to it being Game Mechanics. There have been multiple occasions and entire games where this has not been the case, all of which lack any kind of explanation or suggestion as to why this supposed weakness suddenly doesn't apply.
- Pocket Reality Manipulation: Kirby's stomach is a bottomless dimension in which he has the following abilities:
- When entering there, their enemies can be transmuted into objects representing the ability Kirby gains with them.
- Kirby can fuse targets, moving them together by unexplored means.
- And Kirby can selectively choose enemies within his stomach to use Copy Abilities.
- Fusionism: Kirby has different methods to fuse things, be it powers and enemies. Initially in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards he was able to do the following things; 1) Swallow 2 enemies at a time to get a combined ability from each enemy's copied powers, which is called Combo/Mix Ability. 2) Throw an enemy into another one to transform both into a Combo Star, which when swallowed gives Kirby the Mix Ability he would have had by swallowing at once the 2 enemies the made collide. And 3) Kirby can also retract a Copy Ability he currently has into a Power Star and throw it into an enemy to, once again, transform both into a Combo Star, swallowing that gives Kirby a Mix Ability that derives from the Copy Ability he used to make the Power Star and the enemy he threw the Power Star. In Kirby Star Allies everyone can help others or get helped by others at combining powers including transformations for weapons. This is done mostly by one character generating these changes while other characters just receive this.
- Regeneration: In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, using the Cutter and Super Boomerang abilities allow Kirby to throw off half of his body, have it explode and recover immediately. Super Boomerang is a mix ability obtained from 2 Cutters, and Cutter is an ability obtained from enemies that either; Throw a blade as a boomerang (Sir Kibble), throw their hat as a boomerang (Kapar), launch their head as a projectile, regenerating from that instantly (Fishbone), and ultimately enemies that are literal blades (Sawyer). Nothing suggests that Kirby copied the regeneration from a Fishbone when it's not the only foe that gives him the same power, nor the most common one or even the first he faces. Additionally, Kirby demonstrated to have powers usually related to this degree of regeneration (Toon force, elasticity, body control and high pain tolerance), as well other regeneration feats on a lower scale; This being how he can quickly recover from being crushed flat, which he demonstrated several times, and having no notable damage after fighting Flamberge, who can impale and trap many foes at once like a shish-kebab using a sword covered in fire, before tossing them as projectiles surrounded by fire.
- Summoning: On his own, Kirby can summon the following things:
- A Warp Star, as well as other versions of it. By far the thing he summons the most, Kirby usually uses this vehicle to chase foes & to move into other places quickly as an improvement of his mobility (because Kirby's natural flight is shower than his movement speed, which the Warp Star is slightly faster than). When used, Kirby can run over enemies or battle them with the vehicle's abilities.
- Note 1: The Warp Stars were stated to be located in Dream Land and be the principal method of transportation for the beings there, who need to use it outside of the planet for the vehicles to appear there, nevertheless, they have been summoned in other universes within seconds, timeframe that always takes them to go somewhere.
- Note 2: Warp Stars would seem to move on their own when being summoned and once, one was summoned by being called through a cell phone; both those things are likely alive and thoughts are required for their users to summon them as it would otherwise be impossible for the Warp Stars to know when they're needed as well as where their users are.
- His friend, Gooey, to assist him in his adventures or battles.
- Dyna Blade for a singular attack.
- An army of Gators.
- His Starship to improve air mobility and have access to high range projectiles.
- Can sacrifice his copied ability to summon a "Helper", which is the being he may have used to gain his copied ability, now assisting Kirby in his adventures or battles.
- Team Meteor: After collecting 4 Power Tablets (which appear just by hitting his opponents a certain amount of times) Kirby can summon a meteor to do massive damage and stun his enemies for a while, he can always do this in combat with relative ease.
- In Kirby and the Amazing Mirror Kirby can use his cell phone to call the other 3 Kirbys which will heal some health in contact with Kirby and will assist him in the tasks he's doing.
- A Warp Star, as well as other versions of it. By far the thing he summons the most, Kirby usually uses this vehicle to chase foes & to move into other places quickly as an improvement of his mobility (because Kirby's natural flight is shower than his movement speed, which the Warp Star is slightly faster than). When used, Kirby can run over enemies or battle them with the vehicle's abilities.
- Creation: Kirby can create the following things:
- A Warp Star; Kirby can generate Warp Stars whenever he needs to, the process is usually done by making energy come out of his body, making that turn into a Warp Star. Aside from Star Allies, in which variations of the Warp Star called Friend Stars are created several times, Kirby doesn't usually make use of this power, only being confirmed to have repeatedly done so in Dream Land 2. There are some occasions in which it is not clear if Kirby is summoning or creating a Warp Star due to how quickly he's moving from one place to another while we don't initially see him. Kirby can also create a Warp Star using Star Rod's energy in the same process as if he were making one himself.
- A Friend Star; It's like a Warp Star, but it's created by 4 Star Allies. Once a Friend Star inexplicably turned into a Warp Star during the main story of Star Allies. Its projectiles have the qualities of the powers its main pilot has. By the end of the main story, the Star Allies were able to turn their desire to save everyone into a Friend Star that got fused with the Heard Spears, thus turning into the Star Allies Sparkler, see the Final Weapons section for more information.
- Many flying and tangible projections of his allies to launch at a target.
- Duplication: Kirby can split himself into many (though usually just three) Kirbys. He usually does this to dance at the end of a boss fight, to compete against himself in minigames, or to mark his distance in his end-of-level goal games. He has been shown to create up to 6 other Kirbys.
- Star Dash: After gathering 100 Stars Kirby will enlarge, and will shoot himself forward at high speeds. When using the Kirby amiibo, Kirby can use Star Dashes an infinite amount of times.
- Toon Force: Low Level. Kirby's body has elastic characteristics, can easily recover from being flattened, can transform his Warp Star into ship, has momentarily walk without ground, twice, and can be impaled by Flamberge with no repercussions. In an idle animation, Kirby was shown to be quick enough to go to sleep, dream something up and wake up in time to eat it, during an intro to a level he also shows getting attacked by an enemy he dreamed.
- Ball Kirby: Kirby turns into a ball to have other mobility options.
- Power Absorption: Shown in Kirby's Dream Course and Kirby Canvas Curse. Kirby throws himself at the enemy and will steal his abilities when touching him.
- Slide Kick: Kirby simply slides against the ground, foot first.
- Telekinesis: Kirby displayed this ability at the end of Team Kirby Clash Deluxe. Kirby can use telekinesis to lift things into the air or to destroy things.
- Attack Reflection: Using both sheer precision and unexplored powers Kirby's able to send attacks back at his foes. He does this by hitting those attacks with any of his moves, including projectiles. The reflected attacks will home into the enemy instead of returning through their original route. At worst, Kirby needs to hit bigger attacks more than once to reflect them, although these are arguably just Game Mechanics.
- Resurrection of others: During Mass Attack Kirby was divided into 10 Kirbys, with each of them having only a fraction of his power. If one of those Kirbys were to die, he would fly upwards as a soul which can be caught by another Kirby to revive him, making the previously dead Kirby have a body again (although still damaged). Whether or not Kirby can do this to other beings is unclear. At the same time, at the beginning of the previously said game, 9 of those Kirbys were erased by Necrodeus, and Kirby was still able to revive them despite not being present as souls. Instead, eating enough food somehow brought them back.
- Ghost Kirby: Kirby's ultimate resource. Once dead, he can transform into Ghost Kirby. In this state, he cannot be destroyed or defeated by the other Kirbys in-game and its only objective is to bring himself back to life by hitting someone else thus absorbing life from the target and instantly recreating his body. This is a relatively difficult task as his mobility is now slightly slower than that of the other living Kirbys. Kirby can access this form an unlimited amount of times when dying. While functionally different in gameplay to the Ghost Copy Ability and recolored from it, the Kirby Portal indicates the latter ability to appear in Kirby Triple Deluxe and Kirby Fighters Deluxe, games in which the pink Ghost Kirby appears but not the Copy Ability, as such meaning that they are both the same.
- Attack, Double Attack & Tackle: All of Kirby's contact-based attacks, when used against living opponents, will absorb some of their health/life energy and quickly recreate Kirby's body.
- Vanish: Kirby disappears, becoming invisible and invincible.
- Non-Corporeality: Just like his state using the Copy Ability with the same name, Ghost Kirby is a soul. The environment that may harm living Kirbys passes through him, the only reason others can affect them is due to their Non-Physical Interaction.
- Possess: Kirby charges forward and possesses a target(s) if he comes in contact with them. All damage taken afterward goes to the possessed target(s).
- Erase: Kirby puts the possessed target(s), and anyone they are holding, under his cloak, erasing them.
Powers & abilities many characters share in the verse.
- Friend Heart: Obtained in Kirby Star Allies, Kirby generates a Friend Heart which is then quickly thrown to his objective(s). This can be done an unlimited number of times as well as repeatedly. Upon contact (or near it), the Friend Heart will generate a major change in the empathy of the being(s) affected to the point of making them change their morality towards being an ally to Kirby. The Friend Hearts have also shown to make feel objectives extremely happy, make them have a deep appreciation for Kirby and other allies, generate clothes in others, work on robots, heal & purify others, work without making direct contact to others' bodies as well as affect more than one being at a time, and, by the end of the main story in Star Allies, overwrite the multi-galactic morality changing effects Void Termina forces on allies, thus having the potency of its morality & empathic manipulation scaling from Void Termina who gets physically harmed by the Friend Hearts. (It should be noticed that whether or not Void Termina getting harmed by the Friend Hearts is a specific weakness of his, a characteristic of the Friend Hearts, or both, is left unclear.) The last function the Friend Hearts have is that their targets will immediately be bestowed with the ability the generate and use Friend Hearts with all previously mentioned characteristics.
- Guard: Kirby blocks damage coming in any direction. He can also perform a perfect guard blocking just when the opponent attacks.
- Space Jump: Kirby transforms into a small ball of energy which turns out to be intangible, he uses this power to mobilize himself or regroup with mates faster.
- Revival Spell: A technique that, depending on the game, either resurrects dead allies or merely heals them from being defeated & unconscious. Both uses are applied to their users as they are doing the same process over what seems to be the same spell given the same name. Initially appearing in the Team Kirby Clash mini-game, the Kirbys there could approach others Kirbys and revive them when being defeated, which meant falling into the floor with their souls leaving their bodies. On the Team Kirby Clash Deluxe & Super Kirby Clash games the Kirbys there could even obtain items to improve their ability to resurrect others. Before the latter game, in Kirby Star Allies, every playable character became able to "Revive" defeated allies, but these defeated allies don't lose their souls and it's notable how some are still breathing.
- Team Attack: A technique Kirby can access to with at least another known ally with similar control over energy, such as every Star Ally.
- In Return to Dream Land when piggybacking an ally or more, they can briefly charge energy to use a special attack, the more allies charging energy the more powerful the attack will be. The form of the attack depends on the ally below, which is shooting it. Kirby launches a giant compilation of air forward that can pass through enemies, its size depends on the number of allies charging energy. Kirby & all other allies in-game (Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Bandana Dee) can use their Team Attack to push back and warp the waves of space that were consuming interstellar parts of Another Dimension.
- In Star Allies when piggybacking an ally or more, they can briefly charge energy to shoot an energy beam. The more allies charging energy the more powerful the attack will be.
Items that Kirby finds and uses through his adventures.

Using the Copy Scroll for this ability allows this move to glow blue, grow larger and more powerful, and pass through enemies and some walls. Kirby can also choose to use the front half of his body as the cutter, but the move homes onto Kirby (for obvious reasons) on the return, and Kirby can do nothing but move (can't attack, fly, or other)

- Pill Bopper: Kirby charges a bit, and throws out bouncing pills in all directions.

- Force Blast: Kirby puts his hands behind him like he was preparing for a Kamehameha.

The Giga Force Blast does fire damage. Kirby can instantly perform the Mega Force Blast without charging, but it requires skill (in game, it requires the input for a Hadouken in Street Fighter). This version is called the Instant Mega Force Blast.

- Searing Burn: Kirby stops his Burn attack short to create an explosion with that leftover energy.
- Fireball Spin: Kirby spins like a wheel in midair before self-combusting. If the move is still in progress when he hits the ground, he rolls forward a bit, and can even go up walls.
- Blazing Flare: Kirby spits a small flame to create a roadblock. Kirby can make the flame bigger and bigger if he desires.
Note: There are two versions of this move. One is a natural copy ability, the other Kirby takes if he dies. The former can only possess and erase, while the latter can theoretically do all. For obvious reasons, the latter is also immortal.

Kirby's strongest items. For the most part, they're received only at the end of the game, to fight the boss, and are usually mandatory. They are solely used at that point. Note that Super Abilities are Final Weapons (especially Ultra Sword), but there are enough of them that they can get their own section.
Kirby's final weapon in Planet Robobot used to take out Star Dream. Kirby uses the Robobot Armor to take over the Halberd. He has access to the Combo Cannon, Capture Inhale, the Sail Wing, and the Planet Buster. The Combo Cannon fires locked-on shots. Capture Inhale absorbs debris to power up the Halberd for the Planet Buster. The Sail Wing allows Kirby to do a barrel roll from the Starfox series, deflecting attacks. The strongest move of his is the Planet Buster, which despite the name, is much more powerful than a mere planet busting attack. Kirby fires a cluster of powerful stars that do more damage depending on how much was Capture Inhaled.
Kirby's sorta Final Weapon in Triple Deluxe used to take out Queen Sectonia. Kirby eats a Miracle Fruit, which gives him this ability. Kirby's inhale is increased dramatically, allowing him to swallow anything (it distorts things that are much bigger than him to fit in). Kirby can reflect attacks without the star transformation, and those swallowed by it don't get put into his stomach dimension. They're instantly deleted.
Kirby's "Final Weapon" in Return to Dream Land, used to take out the Lor Starcutter under Magolor's control. and his friends ride on Landia the dragon when it's split into four. He can fire charged up fire bolts and can dash forward and back invincibly.

Kirby's Final Weapon in Amazing Mirror that is used to take out Dark Mind and is one of the only optional ones. Kirby wields Meta Knight's Galaxia (called the Master Sword back then) sword. Kirby has all the normal sword attacks (though buffed up considerably), but his Sword Beam is stronger, wider, and doesn't force him to be at full health, and his Drill Rush is absurdly stronger, does fire damage, and can be used in midair.
Kirby's Final Weapon in Dream Land 2, used to take out Dark Matter the first time. It is formed by fusing all of the Rainbow Drops. The sword works as a normal powerful sword, but it's best used for reflecting projectiles for major damage. It can also create rainbows, hence its name.
Kirby's Final Weapon in The Crystal Shards, used to take out |Zero-Two. It's technically a Mix ability of Ribbon and Crystal. It's is the combination of all of the Crytal Shards into the original Crystal being used as a weapon, and Kirby is being carried and flown by his love interest Ribbon. The two of them fire crystal shots.
Kirby's Final Weapon in Star Allies, used to take out Void Termina. Kirby combines a Friend Star with the four Heart Spears to create it. The Star Allies Sparkler fires projectiles from the tip, fly around quickly and efficiently and spin counterclockwise to avoid all damage on a relative scale (Sparkler Turn). Kirby takes the lead in the center of the Sparkler while his friends ride in the tail. Still, the leader can be rotated to imbue the shots with a different element depending on the leader (the technique is called Rider Switch). The Sparkler can fire different homing projectiles with varying power depending on charge time. An uncharged shot is called the Sparkler Comet, and it fires a star shaped projectile. A charged shot is called the Sparkler Starshot, and it fires a projectile shaped like two intertwining stars. The strongest attack is called Team Star Allies!, which, if everyone who's riding charges together and releases at the same time, fires a giant laser at the opponent.

Kirby's Final Weapon in Squeak Squad, and the only other optional one used to take out Dark Nebula. It is received from Daroach after he drops it after his possession. Kirby is protected by three orbiting stars, and fires a powerful star shot similar to the Star Rod, but faster. The shot can be aimed and guided after it's fired.
