Bell is a Copy Ability. It was first introduced in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and has so far only appeared in that game and its Sub-Game upgrade spin-off, Kirby Fighters Deluxe. The Bell ability gives Kirby a large bell hat with a large pink star on the front and blue ribbon tied to the handle, and two large handbells to use a weapons. This ability can only be obtained by swallowing the enemy Ringle. In Kirby Fighters Deluxe, Bell and Beetle are the two unlockable abilities via StreetPass with Triple Deluxe.

The Bell ability is primarily used to create large damaging sound waves, but the bells themselves can also be thrown to deal damage. The ability also gives Kirby a more powerful guard, in which he hides inside the bell. If enemies attack him while he is hiding, sound waves will be sent out. The Bell ability is one of the few which can be used underwater.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby: Triple Deluxe[edit]

Bell debuts in this game, and is obtainable from the enemy Ringle. Bell is a fairly versatile ability, which allows Kirby to attack from a distance, use a more powerful Guard technique, and attack underwater with it. Kirby also appears to be enjoying himself while he bangs on the bells to create huge sound waves, as a smile can be seen on his face during some of the attacks. Despite this, Bell is one of the less versatile abilities in the game, as its use in puzzle-solving is limited.

Kirby Fighters Deluxe[edit]

Bell appears as a selectable copy ability in this game, but it cannot be used unless the player has save data for Kirby: Triple Deluxe on his/her Nintendo 3DS system. It functions the same as it did in the previous game.
