Doctor is a Copy Ability introduced in the game Kirby: Planet Robobot. Kirby can obtain this ability by inhaling and swallowing Pillah, the capsule-shaped dispensary enemy, or by swallowing the pills it throws at the player. When acquiring this ability, Kirby sports a white coat, a headlamp, and a pair of round blue glasses.

Kirby gains a variety of attacks when developing this ability. His primary attack involves throwing pills at enemies, in a similar vain to Doctor Mario from the Super Smash Bros. games. He also gains a bandage twirling ability, can hit enemies with a giant clipboard, can fire upward with a syringe, and brew chemical concoctions.

Perhaps the most unique aspect of this ability is the Science Lab move, which allows Kirby to create one of four chemical concoctions. One is a fire potion, which spouts a powerful flame. Another is an ice potion that freezes enemies above Kirby. The third is a Beam concoction that fires several small electric projectiles in a fountain-like manner. The last, and by far the rarest (unavailable in some modes), is a green concoction that Kirby drinks to recover Vitality. All three of the offensive brews can be used on their respective elemental puzzles, making this ability very versatile. Kirby will automatically use the concoction once he is done brewing it, or he can Guard or jump before releasing to store it for later use.

Trivia

  • This is the most elaborate costume that Kirby can acquire from a Copy Ability thus far, featuring three distinct articles.
  • If the B button is released before Kirby is finished brewing a concoction in Science Lab, the set will blow up in his face, leaving him covered in soot for a few seconds. This explosion will also damage enemies.
  • This is the first Copy Ability in the series to have a healing move, though it is unavailable in The Arena and The True Arena.
