Boost Orbs are items which can be equipped prior to battles in Kirby Battle Royale. Up to three can be equipped at any one time, and they boost the abilities of their user in various ways. Boost Orbs will convey an effect upon their user either by simply being present, or by being activated during a round, depending on the type. To activate a 'Tap Activation' Orb, the player must tap the orb on the lower screen of the Nintendo 3DS during a round. By contrast, a 'Set Effect Type' Orb does not need to be tapped, and will apply its effect during the entire duration of the round.

In multi-round scenarios, Boost Orbs that are tapped will not be replaced, and they cannot be swapped out for different ones in-between rounds. Boost Orbs are also available in Dedede's Cake Royale, but only a few types can be used there, and they are not unlockable until the Platinum League. To unlock Boost Orbs in Battle Mode, Gold League must be reached in Dedede's Cake Royale. Boost Orbs must also be purchased in the Collection for 400 Battle Coins each with the exception of the first one.

There are several different types of Boost Orbs. They are as follows:
