|“||Chain your bombs together to explode all of them at once! Hold the button down, aim, and throw to place them. The more bombs you connect, the more damage they'll do!||”|
— 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.
All attack names are taken from the Kirby and the Forgotten Land Perfect Support Guide. Applicable equivalent adapted English names from other games are listed in bold.
|Chain Bomb moveset|
|Press B, or release B after Target Throw||Kirby throws a bomb a fair distance.||24 (collision)|
|Hold B||Kirby angles the trajectory of his throw, which is shown to the player. It can be adjusted with the L-Stick.|
This move is referred to as Aim and Throw when the hint movie showing it in action is displayed.
|Tilt L-Stick + B or B after dodging an attack||Kirby rolls a bomb like a bowling ball at nearby enemies.|
|Place multiple bombs near each other with any other move||Up to 6 bombs can be chained together in this manner. When one explodes, all the others do at the same time. The larger the chain, the larger and longer the explosion lasts and the more damage it deals.
Chained bombs will glow different colors depending on how many are grouped together:
|5 per hit (1 chain)|
8 per hit (2 chains)
12 per hit (3 chains)
19 per hit (4 chains)
34 per hit (5 chains)
