The Cell Phone is an item which appears as a plot device in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards once to call the Warp Star in order to fight 0², and later in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror as a regular usable item.
Kirby & The Amazing Mirror
Known mostly due to it's helpful qualities in Amazing Mirror, it is available from the start of the game after completing the first level. The Cell Phone is activated by pressing the L or R buttons, and appears on the top-left of the screen on the HUD.
Functions depend on which button the player presses. Pressing the R button calls Kirby's alternative selves, but consumes battery power. Kirby can cancel the call if the R button is pressed again, but it will still consume battery power nonetheless. After the other Kirbys arrive, Kirby himself can regain health by touching them. Pressing and holding the L button summons a Warp Star, which brings Kirby back to the Central Circle of Rainbow Route. Using this function does not consume any battery power, so, in-turn, it can be used when the battery power is zero. Similar to how the summoning function can be canceled, Kirby can cancel the call by releasing the L button. If playing in multiplayer, the other Kirbys can respond by pressing R.
When playing the game with a link cable, using the cellphone with the R button causes the linked players' screens to darken, and a choice between helping the calling Kirby or not will appear by pressing the R button. This can be used to solve puzzles which the Kirbys cannot handle by themselves.
