Fighter reappears as a rather common ability in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, obtained by swallowing enemies such as Knuckle Joe or touching Copy Pedestals. Fighter's moveset generally emulate the moveset of the Fighter ability in earlier games. Aestheticly, Kirby gains the signature red head band like in Kirby Super Star, but shorter and with a star in the front of the headband.

Super Smash Bros. Trophy Information

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Kirby dons a warrior's headband and becomes a fierce fighter when he swallows an enemy skilled at physical attacks. Fighter Kirby uses many colorful punching and kicking moves as he overpowers his enemies with his sparring skills. The Vulcan Jab is just one of the many techniques Kirby can use thanks to his copying power.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

"Show me your moves!" Wait-that's not Kirby's line! Regardless, he's really fired up and ready to become a fighting machine with that red headband. He knows the basics, like kicking and tossing, but he can also muster his fighting spirit to blast distant foes.
