Leaf is a Copy Ability that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Its attacks include swirling leaves, and throwing them mostly in a vortex fashion. These leaves, like Cutter blades and similar projectiles, are able to cut ropes. In addition, Leaf Kirby also receives a unique Guard, where instead of guarding like he normally would, Kirby hides in a leaf pile, which renders him immune to all attacks. With its unique Guard and the ability to attack from medium range, Leaf is a defensive ability that cautious players can use very effectively.

Leaf returns in Kirby: Triple Deluxe and is unchanged from its previous appearance. It is encountered much less often than in Return to Dream Land, however.

Leaf also returns in Kirby: Planet Robobot.

Moveset for Kirby's Return to Dream Land
Move Controls Details
Leaf Attack 1 Launches several leaves forwards. They swirl around Kirby in an increasing arc before flying offscreen in the forwards direction, dealing delayed damage at surprising ranges.
Leaf Swirl Hold 1 Kirby begins circling around, forming a tornado of leaves that deals continuous damage. Kirby can jump and move slowly while spinning; the move can be held indefinitely.
Leaf Scatter Release 1 during Leaf Swirl The leaf tornado from Leaf Swirl expands as its constituent leaves scatter in various directions.
Leaf Dance Dash + 1 A more contained and time-limited form of Leaf Swirl; a quick twister of leaves that hits repeatedly for a second or two.
Leaf Hide Hold A A special Guard, whereupon Kirby hides in a pile of leaves. Kirby becomes intangible, completely immune to any attacks, which pass through him without causing any chip damage or knockback; enemies likewise take no damage upon colliding with him, however. Releasing the guard causes a burst of leaves that deal minor damage to nearby enemies.
Leaf Uppercut ↑ + 1 Similar to Stone Uppercut, Kirby creates a vertical line of leaves that reaches upwards and hits targets at slightly above his level. Acts quickly and can be reasonably spammed against floating bosses.
Leaf Rain ↓ + 1 in midair Fires mutliple leaves in a fan formation downwards, looking similar to Wing's Feather Gun. Gives Kirby a small boost upwards when used, but the delay between uses makes it not feasible to float with.
