— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Chain Bomb is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Bomb that appears in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. With it, when Kirby throws two chain bombs close enough to each-other, they will link together via a glowing chain. Up to six bombs can be linked together like this, and when they detonate, a large, green, dome-shaped explosion will appear and linger for a couple of seconds. The size of these explosions becomes larger when more bombs are connected together. Kirby's hat becomes a variant of the regular Bomb hat with a green top and a chain-link brim, while the bombs turn green with black bumps on the outside and a spark inside.

The blueprint for Chain Bomb may be found in the stage Fast-Flowing Waterworks. It is located inside a Treasure Chest along the main path, which appears after clearing an enemy ambush. Chain Bomb is required to play the Treasure Road stage Cast a Line! Chain Bomb Trial.

Weapons-Shop Waddle Dee:
The Chain Bomb ability's attack power will increase if you place bombs near each other to form a chain. Bigger, longer chains mean bigger, badder booms!
