This article is about the fruit dropped by Whispy Woods, and should not be confused with Gem Apples.

Apples are inanimate objects, usually dropped by Whispy Woods, that can damage Kirby or another playable character on contact. They yield no Copy Ability when swallowed, nor do they restore Vitality, so their only real use is to spit back at Whispy with.

In cut-scenes, such as those in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Kirby can be seen eating an apple and enjoying it, but counter-intuitively enough, in-game apples are not Food items, and will in fact harm Kirby if he touches them. Their main use is as ammunition against Whispy Woods or other enemies that use them, such as Poppy Bros. Jr., who can sometimes be seen balancing on one.

Kirby: Battle Royale

In the Apple Scramble game, the objective is to grab as many Apples as possible from Mini Whispy Woods and deposit them in the collection area. Kirby can stack a great many apples over his head as he runs (up to 20, though this is rarely seen), but other Kirbys can attack him to get his apples. Red apples are each worth 1 point, but golden apples are worth 5. Additionally, apples can be tossed at rival Kirbys to knock them down.

Apples also appear in Crazy Theater, where the goal is sometimes to carry a specified amount of them before opponents do.
