Balloon is a copy ability in Kirby: Canvas Curse. With it, Kirby can float for a short time when touched with the DS stylus, growing in the process as well. He will soon drop down again, at which point he can be tapped again, growing bigger and moving up again. If repeated enough times, he will eventually explode, although he can be blown up again in the same cycle. Kirby can receive the Balloon ability by defeating the enemy Bloon. In the Rainbow Run mode of Canvas Curse, the Balloon ability is one of four abilities with its own pair of courses, the others being Stone, Missile, and Wheel.
