Capsule J2 is an enemy debuting in Kirby Super Star Ultra, as a replacement for Capsule J from the original Kirby Super Star. With the exception of its head and facial area, it physically resembles the original Capsule J. However, its head is shaped like a jet's nose and it has a pair of high-powered rocket boosters. It also has a lower jaw-like extension and glowing red eyes.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby Super Star Ultra[edit]

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, Capsule J2 fulfills the same role as the original Capsule J did in Kirby Super Star and also attacks in exactly the same way. When it spots Kirby, it shoots towards him at high speeds and attempts to ram into him. It is notable for being the only enemy in the game to give Kirby the Jet Copy Ability when he inhales and swallows it.

Capsule J2 also appears as the helper of the Jet ability. As such, it is capable of performing the same attacks as Kirby when he has the Jet Copy Ability, which include blasting ahead with a powerful kick or shooting ahead at high speed and then releasing a burst of energy. Like the other helpers in the game, Capsule J2 is playable in the Helper to Hero stage.


Capsule J2 can be found in the following places in Kirby Super Star Ultra:

Kirby Mass Attack[edit]

In Kirby Mass Attack, Capsule J2 appears in Kirby Quest. Four of them are encountered in Stage 19 and one is encountered in Stage 22. They have 270 HP.

In the Kirby novel series[edit]

Capsule J2, as he appears in Kirby: Big Race in Pupupu Land!

In the Kirby novel series, Capsule J2 appears in Kirby: Big Race in Pupupu Land! as one of the race's many contestants. He is always grouped with the other racers, and does very little to stand out.

When the race is first starting up, Capsule J2 paces in front of the camera to make himself noticeable. Much later in the story, when Peperon jumps into a river to save Kizario, Kirby immediately calls for Capsule J2 to lend him his strength, and inhales him for the Jet ability. Kirby uses this ability to pull Peperon and Kizario out of the river to safety, and he frees Capsule J2 by dropping the ability afterward.


  • In Kirby Super Star Ultra, the internal filename for Capsule J2 is capsulej, suggesting that Capsule J2 may have replaced Capsule J late in development. Additionally, it appears that Capsule J2's sprites used Capsule J as a base, since the lower half of it resembles an edited version of the original sprite. In Kirby: Mass Attack, its file specifies j2.
  • Capsule J2 is the only one of the "Capsule J" line of enemies to have appeared in more than one Kirby game.
