|Wait for the right moment, and open fire. Hide in the shadows, and become a Sharpshooter! Your precision aiming will let you hit a small target from long distance.|
— Triple Deluxe quote
The Archer ability gives Kirby a purple cap with a white trim and a yellow feather sticking out of the back, and a pink bow with orange tips and star insignia, stocked with brown-shafted arrows. It can only be obtained from a Spynum. The ability allows you to release arrows at several different angles. Kirby can also charge the arrows. They will be charged only twice, allowing for three different types of arrows. He can also shoot arrows straight into the air, and if he charges that, they will become a shower of arrows to rain on surrounding enemies. If Kirby hits the down button, he'll go into camouflage, where he puts up a piece of fake cardboard scenery, like bushes and trees, and hides behind it. He can even fire arrows in this position. Finally, Kirby can melee enemies using his arrows, and jump up in the air and fire several arrows at the ground in front of him.

- Archer is very similar to Cupid as they both shoot arrows. However, there are two key differences. Archer Kirby doesn't have wings, and can't hover in place with this ability. Also, Archer's arrows have noticeably more power, speed, and control options.
- Some of the fake scenery used in Camouflage also include hidden secrets. For instance, Kirby can hide behind a stone that looks similar to Stone Kirby, hide behind an image of King Dedede, and hide behind the HAL Laboratory logo.
