Kirby fires out a copy-ability star
Stars are objects that have varying uses within different Kirby titles. One of the most common appearances is the copy-ability star that enemies become when absorbed by Kirby. When Kirby wants to remove an ability, he will spit out the star of the enemy he absorbed (In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, he can also hold these stars above his head). In many other Kirby games, stars can be collected and, once a certain amount is reached, Kirby will obtain an extra life.

Other Stars

  • The Warp Star is also regularly occurring star that allows Kirby to travel great distances by riding it.
  • A Star Rod is a weapon or copy ability that allows Kirby to fire stars to damage enemies.
  • Star Blocks are a regular occurrence in Kirby games and can be smashed or inhaled
