Cook (misnamed Chef in the Kirby: Triple Deluxe keychain) is a Copy Ability gained by swallowing Chef Kawasaki or Cookin. It allows Kirby to put all enemies and stars on screen into a pot and produce food.[1]

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby Super Star (Ultra) and Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

Artwork of Cook Kirby from Kirby Super Star Ultra.

Kirby's physical appearance in Kirby Super Star Ultra changes only with the addition of a chef's hat. When activating the ability an animated scene begins with Kirby donning a chef hat and conjuring a large gold colored pot. The pot pulls all on screen enemies and stars in then Kirby seasons and stirs the now burning pot. Kirby will raise his arms indicating completion and as many snacks as things in the pot will burst out.

The Cook Copy Ability is one of the few powers that has a limited use[2] and affects all enemies on screen. After using the cook ability once, Kirby returns to his regular state. Kirby cannot produce a helper using this Copy Ability.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Smashwiki logo v2.png SmashWiki has more information about this subject here.

Cook is the Final Smash of Kirby in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where nearby enemies get sucked up into a pot and are cooked. After he is done, the enemies sucked in and some health restoring food are released.

Kirby's Final Smash has been replaced by Ultra Sword since Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, however.

Kirby Star Allies[edit]

In Kirby Star Allies, Cook ability returns in the Kirby main series. It is still a single use ability for Kirby, but now he can charge his cook attack into a powerful fullscreen damaging attack called Souper Supper. Kirby hums to himself while cooking with this ability. He hums one of two different short tunes based on his charge level.

Cook Pot
Kirby summons his cook pot to put every common enemy and defeated body of the mid-boss on the screen into it.
This has no effect on bosses. Kirby is invincible during the whole cooking process.
When the cooking is finished, everything put into his pot will pop out as food instead, and Kirby's Cook ability disappears.
If there is nothing to put into the pot, Kirby won't use up his Cook ability.
Souper Supper
Hold B
In addition to cooking, Kirby launches a huge stream of hot soup from his pot.
This is a fullscreen attack which can deal massive damage to even bosses.
Same with Cook Pot, Kirby's Cook ability disappears when Souper Supper is used.
Does more damage with more Friends in the pot.
  • 1900/1200 (0 Friends)
  • 2100/1400 (1 Friend)
  • 2200/1500 (2 Friends)
  • 2300/1600 (3 Friends)
Reference: A Star Bullet deals 520 damage.

Chef Kawasaki[edit]

Main article: Chef Kawasaki#Kirby Star Allies

Chef Kawasaki also returns as a Mid-Boss and a Friend Helper in Star Alllies, making his first Helper apperance. He can now use the Cook ability an unlimited number of times as a Friend (but with a cooldown timer), and can also use his ladle and plateware as quick attacks.

Friend Ability[edit]

Main article: Cook Potluck

Both Cook Kirby and Chef Kawasaki can use Cook's signature Friend Ability - Cook Potluck to launch friends out of the pot as projectiles.

Character's Food from Cook Pot[edit]

In Kirby Star Allies, when enemies and even Kirby and Friends are cooked into the Cook Pot of Cook Kirby / Chef Kawasaki, each character will fly out of the pot alongside a food item that aligns with their characteristics.
