Top 10 Favorite Kirby powers [top ten]
 
Iím sure everyone has their own favorite Kirby powers, so I thought why not post some of my favorites from the pink oneís fabled library of games. These were picked based on form, function, and personal taste.

I decided to ignore Kirbyís various abilities from the Smash Bros. Series, so you wonít find Wario Kirby or Mario Kirby on this list.

Flaming sword
Appears in: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64, 2000)

Kirbyís had various sword techniques throughout his career. This is one notable because just walking around with it is deadly to those around you. Itís on fire! Kirby can even throw it across the screen, while another sword materializes in his possession.

 
Fireworks
Appears in: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64, 2000)

Kirby explodes various times in the air, and the ensuing fireworks are not only a colorful display, but it also harms enemies surrounding it.

 
Missile launcher
Appears in: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64, 2000)

Simple enough. Kirby can launch an infinite number of heat-seeking missiles from his mouth, three at a time.

 
Tank Robot
Appears in: Kirbyís Epic Yarn (Wii, 2010)

Kirby becomes a giant tank robot who can hover, shoot missiles and throw punches with ease. This all-powerful contraption is limited to a handful of stages, but enemies simply are torn apart in the fabric world.

 
Fighter
Appears in: Kirby Super Star (SNES, 1996)

Kirby becomes a martial arts expert fighting his way into the Street Fighter ranks long before his career in the Smash Bros. series.

 
Crash
Appears in: Kirbyís Adventure (NES, 1992)

Kirbyís had some limited use abilities that pretty much guarantee instant death to all on-screen enemies. Although I did like the cook ability, which also appeared as Kirbyís Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Crash is my favorite because Kirby simply unleashes a massive explosion. Just before the explosion, Kirby freezes everything on the screen in place before flying across the screen erratically at a rapid pace.

 
UFO
Appears in: Kirbyís Adventure (NES, 1992)

A rare power-up in itself, Iíll always have a fond memory of this power-up. I enjoyed the fact that you could have a variety of different lasers and beams depending on how you long you charged the weapon.
UFO returns in Kirbyís Epic Yarn, but with new controls and functions.

 
Dual lightsaber
Appears in: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64, 2000)

Now Kirby can join the dark side. Kirby even does a little spin move every time he attacks.

 
Ninja
Appears in: Kirby Super Star (SNES, 1996)

Everyone knows ninjas are stealthy assassins to be feared. Ninja Kirby can stick to the walls, hide in the shadows, launch a barrage of flying daggers, and use flying kicks. Heís not particularly powerful, but heís very quick, and enemies wonít know what hit them before itís too late.

 
Sword
Appears in: Kirbyís Adventure (NES, 1992)


Not as flashy as some of Kirbyís more elaborate sword techniques, yet this is the noblest of all. It was the classic Sword Kirby who had an epic encounter with Meta Knight in Kirbyís Adventure. Plus, later versions would feature the green hat, reminding everyone of a famous sword-wielding hero from another Nintendo franchise!

 
So thatís it. Some honorable mentions that didnít make the list include the rocket and dolphin (sorry Paleo) from Epic Yarn.

The best part is, weíve already had our first glimpse at what the next Kirby adventure will be like.

How can you not love a character like this?
