Ability Scrolls are special collectable items which may be found inside certain Treasure Chests in Kirby: Squeak Squad. These scrolls allow each of Kirby's abilities to either have a new skill or improve one of his old ones. The only abilities in the game not to have ability scrolls are Ghost and Triple Star, due to the former being unlockable itself, and the latter being a Last Battle Ability only obtainable at the end of the game.

List of scrolls[edit]

The following is a table containing info on each Ability Scroll:

Ability Image Scroll location Function
Animal KSqS Animal and Hammer Scroll sprite.png Nature Notch - Stage 1 Allows Animal Kirby to use a new move while in midair that goes left, right, or down as a drill.
Beam KSqS Beam and Cutter Scroll sprite.png Nature Notch - Stage 5 Changes the Beam Whip into the more powerful UFO Chain Beam version and gives it electric properties.
Bomb KSqS Bomb and Sword Scroll sprite.png Secret Sea - Stage 3 Bomb can now be merged with Ice or Spark to become Ice Bomb or Thunder Bomb, respectively.
Bubble KSqS Bubble Ice Laser and Throw Scroll sprite.png Jam Jungle - Stage 1 Allows Kirby to fire a larger bubble at good distance, which can be aimed slightly.
Cupid KSqS Cupid and Tornado Scroll sprite.png Ice Island - Stage 5 Kirby can now shoot three arrows at once with a dash attack.
Cutter KSqS Beam and Cutter Scroll sprite.png Nature Notch - Stage 4 Makes the Cutter Boomerang bigger and able to pass through multiple targets. (Resembles Hyper Boomerang introduced in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.)
Fighter KSqS Fighter Fire Parasol and Wheel Scroll sprite.png Ice Island - Stage 3 If the B button is held so that it is fully charged, Fighter Kirby can launch an even bigger and more powerful energy blast, which can destroy metal blocks. If Fighter Kirby's health is very low, he can instantly launch the max charged blast.
Fire KSqS Fighter Fire Parasol and Wheel Scroll sprite.png Prism Plains - Stage 3 Allows fire breath to be angled up or down.
Hammer KSqS Animal and Hammer Scroll sprite.png Vocal Volcano - Stage 2 If the B button is held for a certain amount of time, the hammer will grow twice as big, and more powerful.
Hi-Jump KSqS Hi-Jump Ninja and UFO Scroll sprite.png Cushy Cloud - Stage 4 Increases the attack hitbox of Hi-Jump. Allows Hi-Jump to destroy metal blocks. Does not increase the attack power of Hi-Jump, however.
Ice KSqS Bubble Ice Laser and Throw Scroll sprite.png Jam Jungle - Secret Allows Kirby to angle his ice breath up or down.
Laser KSqS Bubble Ice Laser and Throw Scroll sprite.png Jam Jungle - Stage 5 If the B button is held, the laser beam becomes bigger and more powerful, able to pass through multiple targets.
Magic KSqS Magic and Metal Scroll sprite.png Secret Sea - Stage 4 If the B button is held, a spinner appears, and Kirby gets whatever it lands on, losing Magic in the process. This move functions similarly to how Magic worked in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror.
Metal KSqS Magic and Metal Scroll sprite.png Jam Jungle - Stage 3 Allows Kirby to turn into a metal ball, allowing him to roll down slopes, much like how Stone in other games can slide.
Ninja KSqS Hi-Jump Ninja and UFO Scroll sprite.png Vocal Volcano - Stage 3 If the B button is held, Kirby gains energy. If let go on land, he uses a fiery attack. If on water, he uses an aquatic attack.
Parasol KSqS Fighter Fire Parasol and Wheel Scroll sprite.png Vocal Volcano - Stage 1 If the B button is held, the Parasol Shield has an increased range but its power does not increase.
Sleep KSqS Sleep and Spark Scroll sprite.png Vocal Volcano - Secret Sleep now restores some of Kirby's health instead of only rendering him incapable of moving.
Spark KSqS Sleep and Spark Scroll sprite.png Cushy Cloud - Stage 1 Allows Kirby to unleash a larger discharge after having built up some static, or to fire the discharge as a projectile (This is the first time Spark has merged moves from Plasma).
Sword KSqS Bomb and Sword Scroll sprite.png Ice Island - Stage 1 Sword can be merged with Fire, Ice, or Spark to become Fire Sword, Ice Sword, or Thunder Sword, respectively.
Throw KSqS Bubble Ice Laser and Throw Scroll sprite.png Secret Sea - Stage 1 Kirby throws with more power and deals more damage.
Tornado KSqS Cupid and Tornado Scroll sprite.png Cushy Cloud - Stage 5 Allows the tornado to have electric, fiery or icy traits if it goes through electric, fire or ice terrain, respectively.
UFO KSqS Hi-Jump Ninja and UFO Scroll sprite.png Gamble Galaxy - Stage 1 A spark surrounds Kirby, hurting any enemy in contact (Resembles UFO Kirby's Star Guard attack in Kirby: Planet Robobot).
Wheel KSqS Fighter Fire Parasol and Wheel Scroll sprite.png Nature Notch - Stage 3 Allows the wheel to have electric, fiery, or icy traits if it goes through electric, fire or ice terrain, respectively.

Trivia[edit]

Collage of every ability scroll sprite in the game's files. Note that the majority of the scrolls here go unused in the final game.
  • Within the game files, there are 24 distinct Ability Scroll sprites (presumably one for each Copy Ability excluding Triple Star). However, only nine of these scrolls are used in the final game, with abilities sharing the same sprites. It is unclear why the other scrolls ended up not being used.
