KSS Capsule J Sprite.png Capsule J is an enemy in Kirby Super Star, which when inhaled gives Kirby the Jet ability. It is also the helper for the aforementioned Copy Ability.

Capsule J bears a physique similar to a Waddle Doo, except with a blue body, large white gloves for hands, and a round, green visor. In addition, Capsule J sports a huge rocket pack on its back, which it can use to hover short distances through the air. Capsule J itself is not hugely aggressive, and often times is not even seen flying, instead preferring to walk along the ground.

As a helper, Capsule J can use all of the abilities that Jet Kirby possesses. In addition, it gains the use of the Infinity Jump, making it more agile than Jet Kirby, but at the cost of decreased health when compared to the pink puffball.

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, Capsule J is replaced by Capsule J2, who acts mostly the same, but sports an updated design. Given this replacement, Capsule J is the only regular helper from either game which is not playable in Helper to Hero.


Capsule J can be found in the following places in Kirby Super Star:
