Mini is a Copy Ability only available in Kirby & the Amazing Mirror. It is among the rarest abilities in the game, only being obtainable from Minny, an enemy primarily found in Mustard Mountain in very small numbers. Unlike most other abilities, it is not part of the ability roulette triggered by swallowing two ability-yielding enemies at once and cannot be found as a Copy Pedestal in the ability room unlocked after completing the game.

Mini is a unique ability in that it does not grant Kirby any new ways of attacking, but instead causes him to shrink to roughly 1/4 his normal size for as long as he possesses it, enabling him to walk through passages that were previously inaccessible. However, it also disables all of Kirby's powers, other than walking, jumping, dashing and ducking, while it lasts; this means that Kirby cannot float, slide, dash, inhale or use his Cell Phone while in Mini form. As such, Mini cannot be used to battle enemies.

Like other Copy Abilities, Mini is lost when Kirby is hurt or drops it with the Select button; as soon as he loses the ability, he grows back to his normal size, and regains his basic powers, but may shrink once more by inhaling and swallowing the bouncing ability star. If Kirby is in a space that he would not fit into at his usual size, however, he cannot willfully drop the ability, and getting hit in such a position causes him to immediately lose a life. The ability also disappears entirely if Kirby leaves the section in which he acquired it, leaving not even a star behind.
