The 3D Tilt Missile[1] is an object and stage device, first appearing in Kirby: Triple Deluxe which can be found in a few areas and is used to fire rockets into the background, usually to clear away blockades.

The Tilt Missile itself resembles a glorified toy rocket launcher, and carries either one or three missiles on its launch apparatus. When Kirby or King Dedede boards the Tilt Missile, he will then have to aim its trajectory at whatever his target is (the player does this by tilting the Nintendo 3DS system in the appropriate direction), then launch the missile. Missiles launched from the 3D Tilt Missile are capable of defeating enemies and breaking blocks, including heavy stone blocks that Kirby would otherwise be unable to affect with his regular attacks. As such, effective use of this device is needed to get a few Sun Stones. Once all the missiles have been fired from the launcher, it breaks.


The 3D Tilt Missile can be found in the following stages:
