Circus is an ability that gives Kirby and odd hat, that is made to look like a traditional "big-top" circus with a clown-like face on it. It can only be obtained from the Clown Acrobot. The ability gives Kirby several different weapons based around circus acts. These include throwing juggling pins, balancing on a ball, jumping on a trampoline, doing somersaults, jumping through a flaming hoops (this attack can destroy ice blocks), and creating balloon animals. These balloon animals form many things such as flowers, Meta Knight, and even Nightmare's Power Orb. It was introduced in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, along with Beetle, Bell, Archer, and Hypernova, and, along with Archer, returned in Kirby: Planet Robobot. This copy power can also be obtained by scanning in a Mr. Game and Watch amiibo in Kirby Planet Robobot.
